This course provides the graduate-level introduction to understand, analyze, characterize and design the operation of semiconductor devices such as transistors, diodes, solar cells, light-emitting devices, and more.

The material will primarily appeal to electrical engineering students whose interests are in applications of semiconductor devices in circuits and systems. The treatment is physics-based, provides derivations of the mathematical descriptions, and enables students to quantitatively analyze device internal processes, analyze device performance, and begin the design of devices given specific performance criteria.

Technology users will gain an understanding of the semiconductor physics that is the basis for devices. Semiconductor technology developers may find it a useful starting point for diving deeper into condensed matter physics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and materials science. The course presents an electrical engineering perspective on semiconductors, but those in other fields may find it a useful introduction to the approach that has guided the development of semiconductor technology for the past 50+ years.

Bio

Gerhard Klimeck Gerhard Klimeck is an Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty at Purdue University and leads two research centers in Purdue's Discovery Park. He helped to create nanoHUB.org which now serves over 1.5 million users globally. Previously he worked with Texas Instruments and NASA/JPL/Caltech. His research interest is in computational nanoelectronics, high performance computing, and data analytics. NEMO, the nanoelectronic modeling software built in his research group established the state-of-the-art in atomistic quantum transport modeling. NEMO is now being used at Intel for advanced transistor designs and commercialized. He published over 525 printed scientific articles that resulted in an h-index of 64 in Google scholar. He is a fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP), a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of AAAS and a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung (Germany). Together with physicist Michelle Simmons of the University of New South Wales, he "devised a way to make a single-atom transistor", which ranked #29 top invention of 2013 by Discover Magazine. In 2020 the nanoHUB team was awarded a R&D 100 award for “nanoHUB: Democratizing Learning and Research”.
