Properties of charged particles under influence of fields and in solid materials (particularly semiconductors). Quantum mechanics (square wells, barriers, harmonic oscillator, hydrogen atom), particle statistics (distribution functions, density of states), semi-conductor properties (energy bands, energy-momentum relations, dopants, electrons, holes), fundamental particle transport properties (transport of electrons and holes via drift and diffusion), p-n junctions (electric fields, depletion and neutral regions, current voltage characteristics), lasers and masers (stimulated emission, Einstein coefficients, gain, loss). This course is a prerequisite to most 700 level Nanoelectronic and Photonic courses. 3 credit hours.
