Explains quantum mechanics in language that electrical engineers understand
As semiconductor devices become smaller and smaller, classical physics alone cannot fully explain their behavior. Instead, electrical engineers need to understand the principles of quantum mechanics in order to successfully design and work with today's semiconductors.
Written by an electrical engineering professor for students and professionals in electrical engineering, Quantum Mechanics for Electrical Engineers focuses on those topics in quantum mechanics that are essential for modern semiconductor theory.
This book begins with an introduction to the field, explaining why classical physics fails when dealing with very small particles and small dimensions. Next, the author presents a variety of topics in quantum mechanics, including:
The Schrödinger equation
Fourier theory in quantum mechanics
Matrix theory in quantum mechanics
An introduction to statistical mechanics
Transport in semiconductors
Because this book is written for electrical engineers, the explanations of quantum mechanics are rooted in mathematics such as Fourier theory and matrix theory that are familiar to all electrical engineers. Beginning with the first chapter, the author employs simple MATLAB computer programs to illustrate key principles. These computer programs can be easily copied and used by readers to become more familiar with the material. They can also be used to perform the exercises at the end of each chapter.
Quantum Mechanics for Electrical Engineers is recommended for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students as well as professional electrical engineers who want to understand the semiconductors of today and the future.
About the Author:DENNIS M. SULLIVAN is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Idaho as well as an award-winning author and researcher. In 1997, Dr. Sullivan's paper "Z Transform Theory and FDTD Method" won the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society's R. P. W. King Award for the Best Paper by a Young Investigator. He is the author of Electromagnetic Simulation Using the FDTD Method.
