Fundamentals of Solid State Engineering, 2nd Edition, provides a multi-disciplinary introduction to Solid State Engineering, combining concepts from physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, materials science and mechanical engineering.  Basic physics concepts are introduced, followed by a thorough treatment of  the technology for solid state engineering.   Topics include compound semiconductor bulk and epitaxial thin films growth techniques, current semiconductor device processing and nano-fabrication technologies. Examples of semiconductor devices and a description of their theory of operation are then discussed, including transistors, semiconductor lasers and photodetectors.Revised throughout, this second edition includes new chapters on the reciprocal lattice, optical properties of semiconductors, semiconductor heterostructures, semiconductor characterization techniques, and an introduction to lasers.  Additions and improvements have been made to the material on photodetectors and quantum mechanics as well as  to the problem sections.

About the author (2006)

Manijeh Razeghi is a Walter P. Murphy Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the Center for Quantum Devices at Northwestern University. She joined the ECE department in 1991. Prior to that, she was the Head of the Exploratory Materials Lab, Thomson-CSF, Orsay, France, from 1986-1991. She has authored 1000 papers, given more than 500 invited and plenary talks, written 12 book chapters, 8 books, and holds 50 patents. Dr. Razeghi is a Fellow of the International Engineering Consortium, a Life Member and Fellow of the Society of Women Engineers, and a Fellow of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineering, the Optical Society of America (OSA), and of the IEEE. She won the IBM Europe Science and Technology Prize, an Achievement Award from the Society of Women Engineers, and many Best Paper Awards. Manijeh Razeghi received her DEA in 1976, the Docteur 3eme Cycle in Solid State Physics in 1977, and the Docteur d'Etat des Sciences Physiques in 1980, all from the Universite de Paris Sud (11), France. Manijeh Razeghi is one of the leading researchers in the field of optoelectronics. Her areas of expertise are in the growth and characterization techniques for III-V and II-VI semiconductor heterojunction multiple quantum well devices and superlattices for photonic and electronic devices. She was responsible for the design and implementation of epitaxial growth techniques such as metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD), VPE, MBE and metalorganic molecular beam epitaxy (MOMBE) as well as optical, electrical, and structural characterization of the semiconductor multilayers. She has developed a number of semiconductors, advanced photonic and electronic devices such as lasers, photodetectors, transistors and which are in turn used in fiber optics communication.
