• To gain an understanding of semiconductor physics, and apply that knowledge to comprehend the characteristics, operation, and limitations of semiconductor devices.
• To be able to use derivations, calculations, and models to acquire a basic sense of how semiconductor devices work.
• To be able to design semiconductor-based devices to meet desired performance specifications.
• To be able to recognize the mechanisms of new semiconductor devices as they materialize and evolve in the near future.
(3-0-3) Prereq: SP212 or SP222 or permission of chair. [Spring]
In this course, students learn through a blended model of (1) face-to-face instruction and (2) pre- class readings and assignments where students have control over instructional delivery method, time, and pace. Students are expected to come prepared to class to discuss and clarify concepts, to solve problem sets, and to collaborate with their classmates. In this model, your instructor is less of a lecturer and more of a facilitator.
