About this Textbook

The Physics of Semiconductors provides material for a comprehensive upper-level-undergrauate and graduate course on the subject, guiding readers to the point where they can choose a special topic and begin supervised research. The textbook provides a balance between essential aspects of solid-state and semiconductor physics, on the one hand, and the principles of various semiconductor devices and their applications in electronic and photonic devices, on the other. It highlights many practical aspects of semiconductors such as alloys, strain, heterostructures, nanostructures, that are necessary in modern semiconductor research but typically omitted in textbooks. For the interested reader some additional advanced topics are included, such as Bragg mirrors, resonators, polarized and magnetic semiconductors are included. Also supplied are explicit formulas for many results, to support better understanding. The Physics of Semiconductors requires little or no prior knowledge of solid-state physics and evolved from a highy regarded two-semester course at the University of Leipzig.

About the authors

Professor Dr. Marius Grundmann has studied physics at the Technical University Berlin. He has worked on the epitaxy and the characterization of electronic and optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures and nanostructures and devices made from them. Since 2000 he is professor for experimental physics at the University of Leipzig.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is based on the author’s two semester semiconductor course at the University of Leipzig. … This will be ideal for undergraduate courses to give an overview of fundamentals about semiconductors. … The book meets its main objective of giving a summary of semiconductor fundamentals, devices and applications. … I recommend this book for all university libraries and as a textbook for undergraduate courses." (Chennupati Jagadish, Australian Physics, Vol. 44 (4), 2007)

"This book is based on a two-semester semiconductor physics course. … The book presents a broad survey of modern areas in semiconductor physics and technology with lots of figures and diagrams. … The book is aimed at upper-level-undergraduate and graduate courses on semiconductor physics, solid-state physics and physical electronics. Readers will benefit from the excellent integration of text and figures, references and an index." (Reva Garg, Optics and Photonics News, April, 2007)
