The Materials Science of Semiconductors by Angus Rockett


The major function of this e book is to convey perception into why semiconductors are the way in which they’re, both as a result of of how their atoms bond with each other, as a result of of errors of their construction, or as a result of of how they’re produced or processed. The method is to discover each the science of how atoms work together and to attach the outcomes to actual supplies properties, and to point out the engineering ideas that can be utilized to supply or enhance a semiconductor by design. Together with this I hope to point out some functions for the matters beneath dialogue in order that one may even see how the ideas are utilized within the laboratory.

The meant viewers of this e book is senior undergraduate college students and graduate college students early of their careers or with restricted background within the topic. I intend this e book to be equally helpful to these educating in electrical engineering, supplies science, and even chemical engineering or physics curricula, though the e book is written for a supplies science viewers primarily.


To attempt to preserve the give attention to supplies ideas the small print of many of the derivations and equations are overlooked of the e book. Likewise I’ve not delved into the small print of electrical engineering matters in as a lot element as {an electrical} engineer may want. It’s assumed that college students are acquainted with these matters from earlier programs. The core prerequisite topics assumed to be used of this e book are primary chemistry, physics, and electrical circuits. The most important matters from an intermediate degree in these topics are reviewed.

College students taking my class are assumed to have had a condensed matter physics course and a semiconductor machine idea course with considerably extra element than is roofed in Chapters 2 and 3. Moreover they’re assumed to have had some natural chemistry (no less than on the Freshman undergraduate degree) and basic supplies science programs with considerably extra info than I present within the assessment in Chapter 4.

In spite of these expectations my viewers normally consists of graduate college students missing background in no less than one of these matters. My background that applies to the fabric on this e book consists of greater than 25 years doing analysis in semiconductor supplies science and processing. My major analysis over the previous 18 years has involved the elemental supplies science of the semiconductor CuInSe2 and associated compounds. This materials is an enchanting research in all of the matters of supplies science rolled right into a single subject.


As such, the outcomes seem sometimes within the e book as illustrations. Given rising considerations about vitality world extensive, the e book additionally makes reference to photo voltaic cells, correctly referred to as photovoltaic gadgets, in a number of utility sections. This additionally displays my lengthy research of that subject.

I’ve taught a category based mostly on the fabric that’s introduced on this e book for a few years. I get by way of most of the matters, excluding detailed discussions of the functions, in a single semester. Every chapter sometimes will get about three hours of lecture, though Chapters 6, 7, 9, and 12 typically obtain 4 to 5 lectures and Chapter 1 will get one hour. My college students have usually been a combination of senior undergraduate and graduate college students. One of the frequent options of these college students is that many, particularly the graduate college students, lack a powerful background in some one of the underlying prerequisite topics corresponding to condensed matter physics, rules of digital gadgets, or supplies science.

Due to this fact the e book features a transient assessment of these matters in Chapters 2-4 and I cowl these topics in a short time within the class. Even for the scholars with a background in all of these areas I normally discover it useful to assessment chosen matters from these chapters. In presenting assessment matters I hope that the e book may be helpful to a scholar physique that fully lacks an in depth background if the trainer is prepared to undergo this materials.
