Quantum mechanical phenomena-including energy bands, energy gaps, holes, and effective mass-constitute the majority of properties unique to semiconductor materials. Understanding how these properties affect the electrical characteristics of semiconductors is vital for engineers working with today's nanoscale devices.
Designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, Principles of Semiconductor Devices covers the dominant practical applications of semiconductor device theory and applies quantum mechanical concepts and equations to develop the energy-band model. The text presents quantum mechanics through examples related to the energy-band model, providing students with a deeper understanding of the energy-band diagrams used to explain semiconductor device operation. The semiconductor theory is directly linked to the electronic layout and design of integrated circuits.
The author has divided the text into four parts. Part I explains semiconductor physics, and Part II presents the principles of operation and modeling of the fundamental junctions and transistors. Part III discusses the diode, MOSFET, and BJT topics that are needed for circuit design. Part IV introduces photonic devices, microwave FETs, negative-resistance diodes, and power devices. The chapters and the sections in each chapter are organized hierarchically. Core material is presented first, followed by advanced topics, allowing instructors to select more rigorous, design-related topics as they see fit.

Sima Dimitrijev is Professor at the School of Microelectronic Engineering at Griffith University in Australia. He is author of Understanding Semiconductor Devices (OUP, 2000), as well as numerous other publications in the areas of MOSFET technology, modeling, and applications.
"This book is better than other texts available on this topic because of its straightforward intuitive descriptions combined with the artfully presented, detailed, and quantitatively rendered illustrations."-- Matthew Grayson, Northeastern University
"The author is eloquent and presents complex material in a logical sequence, which provides for comparatively easy reading. I find the many numerical examples (including the MatLab scripts) particularly useful from a pedagogical perspective since they invite students to become more actively engaged with the novel material and concepts. In addition, they provide visual support for some otherwise abstract mathematical relationships."--Godi Fischer, University of Rhode Island
