About this Textbook

This textbook lays out the fundamentals of electronic materials and devices on a level that is accessible to undergraduate engineering students with no prior coursework in electromagnetism and modern physics. The initial chapters present the basic concepts of waves and quantum mechanics, emphasizing the underlying physical concepts behind the properties of materials and the basic principles of device operation. Subsequent chapters focus on the fundamentals of electrons in materials, covering basic physical properties and conduction mechanisms in semiconductors and their use in diodes, transistors, and integrated circuits. The book also deals with a broader range of modern topics, including magnetic, spintronic, and superconducting materials and devices, optoelectronic and photonic devices, as well as the light emitting diode, solar cells, and various types of lasers. The last chapter presents a variety of materials with specific novel applications, such as dielectric materials used in electronics and photonics, liquid crystals, and organic conductors used in video displays, and superconducting devices for quantum computing.

Clearly written with compelling illustrations and chapter-end problems, Rezende’s Introduction to Electronic Materials and Devices is the ideal accompaniment to any undergraduate program in electrical and computer engineering. Adjacent students specializing in physics or materials science will also benefit from the timely and extensive discussion of the advanced devices, materials, and applications that round out this engaging and approachable textbook.

About the authors

Sergio Machado Rezende graduated in Electrical Engineering in Rio de Janeiro in 1963 and received the MSc (1965) and PhD (1967) degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, both in Electrical Engineering- Materials Science. He was one of the founders and first chairman of the Physics Department of the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) (1972-1976), in Recife, where he is Emeritus Full Professor. He was twice Visiting Professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara (1975-1976 and 1982-1984). He has published over 280 scientific papers in international journals on dynamic excitation phenomena in magnetic materials, magnetic nanostructures, and in spintronics, and has supervised over 40 MSc and PhD students. His scientific activities have never been interrupted by science managing positions he held, Dean of the Center for Exact Sciences of UFPE (1984-1988), Scientific Director of the Pernambuco Science Foundation (1990-1993), Secretary for Science and Technology of Pernambuco (1995-1998), President of FINEP, the main federal agency for funding of S&T in Brazil (2003-2005) and Minister for Science and Technology of Brazil (2005-2010), under President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. He is a member of several scientific societies, Honorary President of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC), and has received several prizes and awards in Brazil and abroad.
