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 Spring 2008 course will cover the book by Kamins on Polycrystalline Silicon and related reading materials.
Sample reading list:
Theodore I. Kamins, Polycrystalline Silicon for Integrated Circuits and Displays
Articles typically from the Journal of, Applied Physics, Applied Physics Letters, Eletrochemical Soc
Safa O. Kasap, Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices
Not Open to Freshmen.
Prerequisites and Restrictions:
Prerequisite: a course in solid-state or semiconductor physics, or in solid-state chemistry.
Course time will be adjusted to students' schedules. Grades will be given based on weekly quizzes, one to three presentations, and a final exam. Prerequisite: a course in solid-state or semiconductor physics, or in solid-state chemistry.
