MSc Electrical and Computer Engineering (TB) - Advances in Semiconductor Materials

Engineering 5735 Advances in Semiconductor Materials
Students will study advanced semiconductor materials based on compound alloys such as arsenides, phosphides, and nitrides. The properties of semiconductor materials - electrical and optical - will be determined on the basis of their electron band structures. Special attention will be given to calculation of the electron band structures on the ternary and quaternary semiconductor compound alloys and determination of the properties. New phenomena in the disordered alloys such as tunnel optical absorption and excitons of the structure will be studied.
