ECE6209J – Principles of Semiconductor Devices

Instructor: Rui Yang

Instructors (Faculty):

Credits: 3 credits

Pre-requisites: Ve320 or equivalent (Recommended)


This course is offered to graduate students to present an in-depth overview of the principles of semiconductor devices, such as PN junctions, MOSFETs, and emerging nanoelectronic devices. It will also introduce techniques used in the fabrication of modern semiconductor devices and nanoelectronic devices as well as the principles behind them. The course covers the physics of major semiconductor devices and key processing techniques in modern semiconductor device and integrated circuits, thus equipping students with the knowledge required for engineers and scientists in the semiconductor industry. The course will also describe how recent developments in nanotechnology have enabled advanced semiconductor electronic devices. If appropriate, the course will include lab sessions for the students to realize their own design of semiconductor devices.
