For undergraduate electrical engineering students or for practicing engineers and scientists, interested in updating their understanding of modern electronics.
One of the most widely used introductory books on semiconductor materials, physics, devices and technology, this text aims to: 1) develop basic semiconductor physics concepts, so students can better understand current and future devices; and 2) provide a sound understanding of current semiconductor devices and technology, so that their applications to electronic and optoelectronic circuits and systems can be appreciated. Students are brought to a level of understanding that will enable them to read much of the current literature on new devices and applications.

This book is designed to help readers gain a basic understanding of semiconductor devices and the physical operating principles behind them. This two-fold approach 1) provides the user with a sound understanding of existing devices, and 2) helps them develop the basic tools with which they can later learn about applications and the latest devices. The piece provides one of the most comprehensive treatments of all the important semiconductor devices, and reflects the most current trends in the technology and theoretical understanding of the devices.
