Applied Semiconductor Physic (WS)

Lecturer: Prof.Dr. Johann-Peter Reithmaier

Content of the lectures

The lectures consist of 4 SWh. (lectures and exercises). The lectures are suitable for students from 5. Semester of "Nanostructure Science Course" and "Physics Diploma" (Subject: Experimental Physics or elective course). Basic knowledge of Solid State Physics is desirable. The basics of Solid State Physics will be repeated to the extent of understanding the Semiconductor Physics.
The lectures present the basics of Semiconductor Physics and discuss examples of the most important devices in electronics, optoelectronics and photonics.

The following topics will be discussed:

* Crystal structures
* Energy bands
* Spectrum of the phonons
* Population statistics
* Doping and charge carrier transfer
* Bedding phenomena
* p-n Junktion
* p-n Diodes
* Bipolar transistors
* Thyristor
* Field effect
* Schottky-Diode
* Integrated circuits
* Storage devices
* Tunnel effect
* Tunnel diodes
* Microwave devices
* Optical properties
* Laser principle
* Wave distribution and guiding
* Photon detectors
* Light Emitting Diode
* High-power and communication lasers
* Small dimensional electronic systems
* Single electron transistor
