By completing the Crystal Viewer Lab in ABACUS - Assembly of Basic Applications for Coordinated Understanding of Semiconductors, users will be able to understand: a) crystals,b) crystal directions, and c) Miller indices.
The specific objectives of the Crystal Viewer Lab are:
Users who are new to crystal structures and Miller indices should consult the following materials:
1. Rober F. Pierret. (1996). Semiconductor Device Fundamentals. 2nd ed. Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley.
2. Michael Shur. (1990). Physics of Semiconductor Devices. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall.
3. Dragica Vasileska, Stephen M. Goodnick and G. Klimeck. (2010). Computational Electronics: Semiclassical and Quantum Device Modeling and Simulation. Boca Raton, LA: CRC Press.
Exercises and Homework Assignments
Solutions to Exercises
Solutions are provided only to instructors!
This test will assess the users conceptual understanding of the physical, mathematical and computational knowledge related to the identification of crystal structures and the calculation of Miller indices.
Users are challenged to integrate what they have learned about crystal lattices.
