Description

This text brings together traditional solid-state approaches from the 20th century with developments of the early part of the 21st century, to reach an understanding of semiconductor physics in its multifaceted forms. It reveals how an understanding of what happens within the material can lead to insights into what happens in its use.

  • Offers a comprehensive view of modern underpinnings of the behaviour of semiconductors at the nanoscale
  • The only book of its kind for advanced learning
  • Physical reasoning with analytic and mathematical arguments lead to intuitive understanding with analytic rigor
  • Harmonized with three other volumes in Electroscience series to build integrated learning

About the Author(s)

Sandip Tiwari, Charles N. Mellowes Professor in Engineering, Cornell University

Sandip Tiwari is Charles N. Mellowes Professor in Engineering at Cornell University and Visiting Professor at Université de Paris-Sud (Orsay). His contributions to engineering have included the invention of nanocrystal memories, as a group researcher in the first demonstration of SiGe bipolar transistor and a variety of others of fundamental importance—-theoretical and experimental—-in electronic and optical devices, circuits and architectures. He was founding editor-in-chief of IEEE's Transactions on Nanotechnology. Among the various recognitions of his contributions are the Cledo Brunetti award of IEEE (2007), the Young Scientist Award from Institute of Physics' GaAs & Related Compounds (2003), the Distinguished Alumni award of IIT Kanpur (2002), and the fellowships of IEEE (1994) and APS (1998).
