## Fundamentals of semiconductors: physics and materials propertiesThis second updated edition of Fundamentals of Semiconductors attempts to fill the gap between a general solid-state physics textbook & research articles by providing detailed explanations of the electronic, vibrational, transport, & optical properties of semiconductors. The approach is physical & intuitive rather than formal & pedantic. Theories are presented to explain experimental results. This textbook has been written with both students & researchers in mind. Its emphasis is on understanding the physical properties of Si & similar tetrahedrally coordinated semiconductors. The explanations are based on physical insights. Each chapter is enriched by an extensive collection of tables of material parameters, figures, & problems. Many of these problems "lead the student by the hand" to arrive at the results. |
