This course is part of a three-part series, which explains the basis of the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials including semiconductors, metals, organics, and insulators. We will show 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 1 - Electronic Materials and Devices

Part 3 - Magnetic Materials and Devices

What you'll learn:

- The fundamental operating principles of photodevices

- LED and heterojunction laser materials selection and design

- Fundamentals of organic electronics and liquid crystal displays

- An overview of photonic systems

- Optical fibers: dispersion, losses, and design choices
