This book provides the knowledge and understanding necessary to comprehend the operation of individual electronic devices that are found in modern micro-electronics. As a textbook, it is aimed at the third-year undergraduate curriculum in electrical engineering, in which the physical electronic properties are used to develop an introductory understanding to the semiconductor devices used in modern micro-electronics. The emphasis of the book is on providing detailed physical insight into the microscopic mechanisms that form the cornerstone for these technologies. Mathematical treatments are therefore kept to the minimum level necessary to achieve suitable rigor. It covers crystalline structure and gives a thorough introduction to the key principles of quantum mechanics. It talks about semiconductor statistics, impurities, and controlled doping. It includes a detailed analysis of the operation of semiconductor devices, including p-n junctions, field-effect transistors, metal-semiconductor junctions and bipolar junction transistors. It contains a discussion of optoelectronic devices such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers. It includes chapters on the device applications of dielectrics, magnetic materials, and superconductors.

David Ferry is currently Regents' Professor of Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University (since 1983). Previously, he was on the faculty of Texas Tech University and Colorado State University, and served briefly at the Office of Naval Research. He received the 1999 Cledo Brunetti Award from the IEEE for advances in nano-electronic theory and experiment. He is a fellow of both the IEEE and the APS. He recently received ASU's 2000 award for graduate mentorship. He is the author/co-author of many books and book chapters, and more than 500 scholarly publications. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas in 1966 and spent one year at the Boltzmann Institute and University of Vienna, both in Vienna, Austria. Jonathan Bird is Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Sussex (UK) in 1990, before spending a year at the University of Tsukuba as a visiting Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, followed by 5 years as a researcher in the Frontier Research Program of the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) in Japan. Professor Bird is co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and is also a member of the IEEE and the Institute of Physics (UK).
