      Course Description
    Introduces the properties of electronic materials, with an emphasis on understanding the properties of the semiconductors that are important for modern microelectronics. The course begins with a brief review of concepts from classical physics and quantum mechanics, before going on to present the free-electron theory of metals, essentials of crystals structure, and the band theory of solids. This leads to the introduction of the concept of semiconductors, whose carrier statistics, doping, and bandstructure are then presented. The final section of the course focuses on reviewing the many applications of semiconductors to electronic and photonic technologies.
