Summary: "Modern fabrication techniques have made it possible to produce semiconductor devices whose dimensions are so small that quantum-mechanical effects dominate their behavior. This book describes the key elements of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and solid-state physics that are necessary in understanding these modern semiconductor devices. Theoretical results are illustrated with reference to real devices such as photodiodes, flat-panel displays, and metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors." "The book contains many homework exercises and is suitable as a textbook for electrical engineering, materials science, or physics students taking courses in solid-state device physics. It will also be a valuable reference for practicing engineers in optoelectronics and related areas."--Jacket.
