Theoretical principles underlying the operation of electronic devices. Postulates of quantum mechanics: wave–particle duality, uncertainty relations, electronic band structure. Free-carrier statistics; electron–photon interaction. Physical principles of semiconductor and optoelectronic devices.
Student will learn the fundamental theory of all modern devices - quantum mechanics. In the thorough discussion of Solid-State-Physics resulting in the understanding of PN junctions which are the basis of Transistors, LED’s and Solar cells, students get introduced to the rich physics of Electro-Magnetism. Here the course shifts to optical phenomenae and introduces the novel concepts of plasmonics – metal optics. At this point students are ready to comprehend the technological implementations of these physical theories by discover modern devices like lasers, LEDs, Photodetectors, MOSFETs and HEM-FETs, and solar cells.
