Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

Course provides comprehensive understanding of compound semiconductors, stressing how differences with Si enable unique applications in electronics, photonics, and thermoelectrics.  Materials include group IV (SiGe, SiC), III-V (GaAs, InP, GaN), II-VI (ZnO, CdTe), and layered semiconductors (Bi2Se3, BN, MoS2), and will touch on organic and dilute magnetic semiconductors.  Methods of crystal growth, doping, strain control, and fabrication will be discussed.  Electronic bandstructure will be used to develop band diagrams of complex heterostructures and nanostructures including quantum wells, wires, and dots.  Examples of these materials in electronic, photonic, thermoelectric, and solar cell applications will be used to motivate the materials science.

When Offered Fall or spring.
