Descriptif

Goal: To introduce the physical phenomena which appear in semiconductor materials and are used in microelectronic sensors or devices.  To understand the physics and operation of basic semiconductor devices: PN junctions, metal-oxide semiconductor (MOS) capacitors, MOS transistors.

Content : Physical and electrical conducting properties of semiconductors.
• Semiconductor elementary properties at equilibrium: structures, energy bands, electron and hole, doping
•Poisson equation and consequences (Space Charge Region, potential barrier or well)
•Weak perturbations of equilibrium: charge transport (conduction, carrier mobility, diffusion, Hall effect)
•Strong perturbations of equilibrium (carrier generation and recombination)
Principle of operation and electrical characteristics of basic semiconductor devices:
•PN junctions
•MOS capacitors and transistors
Prerequisites - Basics of : Quantum Physics, Statistical Physics, Solid-State Physics (electronic properties, energy bands, charge carriers)
