This course is part 1 of a series that explain the basis of the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials including semiconductors, metals, organics, and insulators. You will learn how devices are built to take advantage of these properties. This is illustrated with a wide range of devices, placing a strong emphasis on new and emerging technologies.

Part 2 - Optical Materials and Devices

Part 3 - Magnetic Materials and Devices


What you'll learn:

- The origins of semiconductor properties

- Carrier action in semiconductors: drift, diffusion, recombination and generation

- The behavior of p-n junctions at equilibrium and under bias

- The derivation and application of the ideal diode equation, and how real diodes differ from ideal diodes

- Operating principles of bipolar junction transistors and MOSFETs
