Solid State Electronics Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
This course is a continuation of semiconductor material engineering and electronic device courses. In this course, students will be exposed to the basic theories of hetero-structures and their applications for electronic and opto-electronic devices including memories. Specifically, students are exposed to the major types of GaAs and GaN-alloyed semiconductors, their physical properties and structures which make them suitable for electronic and opto-electronic devices. Heterojunction bipolar transistors and modulation-doped field effect transistors will be used to describe the basic characteristics needed for electronic device operation. Then, to explain the required characteristics for opto-electronic devices, semiconductor lasers will be used as an example.
1. Able to explain the fundamentals of semiconductor heterostructures. 2. Able to explain the fundamentals of semiconductor devices (HBT, MODFET, semiconductor laser ) including their electronic and opto-electronic characteristics. 3. Communicate and work in a team to accomplish the given assignments in writing.
