School of engineering in Physics, Applied Physics, Electronics & MaterialsScience
To understand the physical phenomena which appear in semiconductor materials and are used in microelectronic devices or sensors.
• Semiconductor elementary properties at equilibrium (crystal lattices, energy bands, electrons and holes, doping)• Weak perturbations of equilibrium : charge transport (conduction, carrier mobility, diffusion)• Poisson equation and consequences (space charge region, potential barrier or well)• PN junction• Strong perturbations of equilibrium (carrier generation and recombination)• Metal-semiconductor contact
