Rather, the main purpose of this book is to provide an introductory perspective on the basic principles of semiconductor materials and their applications that are described in a . About this book This Third Edition updates a landmark text with the latest findings The Third Edition of the internationally lauded Semiconductor Material and Device Characterization brings the text fully up-to-date with the latest developments in the field and includes new pedagogical tools to . An Introduction to Semiconductor Devices by Donald Neamen provides an understanding of the characteristics, operations and limitations of semiconductor devices. In order to provide this understanding, the book brings together the fundamental physics of the semiconductor material and the semiconductor device physics. This fourth edition of the well-established Fundamentals of Semiconductors serves to fill the gap between a general solid-state physics textbook and research articles by providing detailed explanations of the electronic, vibrational, transport, and optical properties of semiconductors.
One feature that sets this book apart from others on the market is that the materials science aspects of semiconductors are given a more impor- tant role. The growth techniques and defect properties of semiconductors are represented early on in the book rather than mentioned in an appendix. Semiconductor materials are nominally small band gap defining property of a semiconductor material is that it can be doped with impurities that alter its electronic properties in a controllable way. Because of their application in the computer and photovoltaic industry—in devices such as transistors, lasers, and solar cells—the search for new semiconductor materials and the. One great book to start with is Neamen's Semiconductor Physics and Devices. It's written in an easygoing tone and very readable, and it covers everything from basic solid-state physics to transport behavior (e.g., drift-diffusion) to all kinds of. IntroductIon to 1 SemIconductorS CHAPTER OUTLINE 1–1 The Atom 1–2 Materials Used in Electronic Devices 1–3 Current in Semiconductors 1–4 N-Type and P-Type Semiconductors 1–5 The PN Junction CHAPTER OBJECTIVES Describe the structure of an atom Discuss insulators, conductors, and semiconductors and how they differ Describe how current is produced in a semiconductor.
Semiconductor Material and Device Characterization remains the sole text dedicated to characterization techniques for measuring semiconductor materials and devices. Coverage includes the full range of electrical and optical characterization methods, including . Types of Semiconductor Materials • The silicon doped with extra electrons is called an “N type” semiconductor. –“N” is for negative, which is the charge of an electron. • Silicon doped with material missing electrons that produce locations called holes is called “P type” semiconductor. Semiconductor Silicon Crystal Technology provides information pertinent to silicon, which is the dominant material in the semiconductor industry. This book discusses the technology of integrated circuits (ICs) in electronic materials manufacturer. Comprised of eight chapters, this book provides an overview of the basic science, silicon materials, IC device fabrication processes, and their. Containing the most reliable parameter values for each of these semiconductor materials, along with applicable references, these data are organized in a structured, logical way for each semiconductor material. * Reviews traditional semiconductor materials as well as new, advanced semiconductors. * Essential authoritative handbook on the properties of semiconductor materials.
