About this Textbook

A modern and concise treatment of the solid state electronic devices that are fundamental to electronic systems and information technology is provided in this book. The main devices that comprise semiconductor integrated circuits are covered in a clear manner accessible to the wide range of scientific and engineering disciplines that are impacted by this technology. Catering to a wider audience is becoming increasingly important as the field of electronic materials and devices becomes more interdisciplinary, with applications in biology, chemistry and electro-mechanical devices (to name a few) becoming more prevalent. Updated and state-of-the-art advancements are included along with emerging trends in electronic devices and their applications. In addition, an appendix containing the relevant physical background will be included to assist readers from different disciplines and provide a review for those more familiar with the area. Readers of this book can expect to derive a solid foundation for understanding modern electronic devices and also be prepared for future developments and advancements in this far-reaching area of science and technology.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Papadopoulos (Univ. of Victoria, Canada) has written a useful, up-to-date textbook on solid-state electronic devices. … Papadopoulos provides many electron-microscope images and other hands-on illustrations of the way devices and structures are currently made. … This work should be useful as a supplement in both undergraduate and graduate classes to give students a graphic and accurate sense of state-of-the-art developments … . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, two-year technical program students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners.” (K. D. Stephan, Choice, Vol. 51 (11), July, 2014)
