The Physics of Semiconductors: An Introduction Including by Marius Grundmann

By Marius Grundmann

The third variation of this profitable textbook includes considerable fabric for a entire upper-level undergraduate or starting graduate direction, guiding readers to the purpose the place they could select a different subject and start supervised study. The textbook presents a stability among crucial facets of solid-state and semiconductor physics, at the one hand, and the rules of varied semiconductor units and their functions in digital and photonic units, at the different. It highlights many useful points of semiconductors akin to alloys, pressure, heterostructures, nanostructures, which are beneficial in sleek semiconductor learn yet in general passed over in textbooks. insurance additionally contains extra complicated themes, similar to Bragg mirrors, resonators, polarized and magnetic semiconductors, nanowires, quantum dots, multi-junction sun cells, skinny movie transistors, carbon-based nanostructures and obvious conductive oxides. The textual content derives specific formulation for lots of effects to help larger knowing of the themes. The Physics of Semiconductors calls for very little earlier wisdom of solid-state physics and advanced from a extremely popular two-semester path. within the 3rd version a number of subject matters are prolonged and taken care of in additional intensity together with surfaces, disordered fabrics, amorphous semiconductors, polarons, thermopower and noise. greater than 1800 references advisor the reader to old and present literature together with unique and overview papers and books.
