Passed final examination. Students may optionally also obtain credit for homework assignments.


After completing the course, the student can explain the fundamentals of semiconductor physics (energy bands, charge carriers, doping, conductivity, mobility, junctions between conductors, semiconductors, dielectrics) The student is also able to explain the operating principles of the key semiconductor devices (e.g. p-n junction, Schottky and tunnel diodes, junction and field effect transistors, photovoltaic devices) and the materials parameters affecting these. The student develops a physical understanding that can be applied to novel devices (e.g. bulk heterojunction devices) , materials (e.g. metal oxides, organics) or processes (e.g. printing).
