Since the book can be followed with little or no pre-existing knowledge in solid-state physics and quantum mechanics, it is also suitable for undergraduate students. For the interested reader some additional topics are included in the book that can be covered in subsequent, more speci- ized courses. The material is selected to provide a balance between aspects of solid-state and semiconductor physics, the concepts of various semiconductor devices and modern applications in electronics and photonics.

Fundamentals of Semiconductors

ISBN: 3642007104
Release Date: 2010-04-07
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Excellent bridge between general solid-state physics textbook and research articles packed with providing detailed explanations of the electronic, vibrational, transport, and optical properties of semiconductors "The most striking feature of the book is its modern outlook ... provides a wonderful foundation. The most wonderful feature is its efficient style of exposition ... an excellent book." Physics Today "Presents the theoretical derivations carefully and in detail and gives thorough discussions of the experimental results it presents. This makes it an excellent textbook both for learners and for more experienced researchers wishing to check facts. I have enjoyed reading it and strongly recommend it as a text for anyone working with semiconductors ... I know of no better text ... I am sure most semiconductor physicists will find this book useful and I recommend it to them." Contemporary Physics Offers much new material: an extensive appendix about the important and by now well-established, deep center known as the DX center, additional problems and the solutions to over fifty of the problems at the end of the various chapters.

Progress in compound semiconductor materials III electronic and optoelectronic applications

Author: Materials Research Society. Meeting
ISBN: UCSD:31822033361577
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Recent developments in semiconductor materials and quantum structures are leading to significant advances in optoelectronic devices such as mid-infrared lasers and light-emitting diodes; long-wavelength detectors and solar cells; and modulators and optical switches. Brought to maturity, such devices would likely see widespread use in applications as diverse as infrared imaging, chemical and biological sensing, surveillance, short-links, space-based applications, solar cells, high-bandwidth communications, and many others. This volume highlights the progress in both naturally-and artificially-structured "wave-function-engineered" semiconductors, focusing on epitaxial compound-semiconductor compounds and alloys. The relationships among electronic, optical, and transport properties are emphasized, as are the implications for design and performance. Materials of particular interest include the familiar III-V compounds and alloys; newer offspring of these, such as the dilute-nitride III-Vs; ZnO and II-IV semiconductors; and spintronic materials. Exploratory studies of less commonly studied materials which may be of increasing future interest are also featured. Topics include: low-bandgap and dilute-nitride semiconductors; growth, structure and defects; emitters, detectors and solar cells; devices; zinc oxide; spintronics and quantum structures; quantum dots and wires-structure, spectroscopy and transport; and quantum dots and wires-devices.

Quantum Kinetics in Transport and Optics of Semiconductors

Dry Etching Technology for Semiconductors

Author: Kazuo Nojiri
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319102955
Release Date: 2014-10-25
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book is a must-have reference to dry etching technology for semiconductors, which will enable engineers to develop new etching processes for further miniaturization and integration of semiconductor integrated circuits. The author describes the device manufacturing flow, and explains in which part of the flow dry etching is actually used. The content is designed as a practical guide for engineers working at chip makers, equipment suppliers and materials suppliers, and university students studying plasma, focusing on the topics they need most, such as detailed etching processes for each material (Si, SiO2, Metal etc) used in semiconductor devices, etching equipment used in manufacturing fabs, explanation of why a particular plasma source and gas chemistry are used for the etching of each material, and how to develop etching processes. The latest, key technologies are also described, such as 3D IC Etching, Dual Damascene Etching, Low-k Etching, Hi-k/Metal Gate Etching, FinFET Etching, Double Patterning etc.
