ELE 541 / MSE 510
Science and technology of the materials used in electronics. A new group of materials, processes and application is emphasized each year. Recent topics have included amorphous and polycrystalline silicon, thin film processes and vacuum techniques, materials for displays, and defects in semiconductors. The Fall 2006 course will cover materials and processes for large-area electronics (macroelectronics).
