Physics of Semiconductors and Their Heterostructures

Published in 1993, this book was among the first graduate level textbooks on the then emerging field of heterostructures. Basic bandstructure issues are discussed (tight binding formalism, k.p formalism, effective mass approach) for semiconductors and quantum well systems. Particular attention is paid to strained systems. Phonons are then discussed before scattering and transport theory. High field transport (Monte Carlo methods) and optical processes critical in devices are covered.

Semiconductor Devices: An Introduction

This textbook is beneficial for teaching semiconductor device physics to undergraduates as well as for engineers who want to understand more of device physics. The text discusses basic electronic properties of important semiconductors and then examines issues in carrier transport and electron-hole recombination and generation. The text uses numerous solved examples to convey concepts and design issues relevant to diodes, transistors (bipolar and field effect). It also examines important optoelectronic devices.

Electronic and Optical Properties of Semiconductors Structures

Published by Cambridge in 2003, this is an updated version of my first heterostructure book with new materials on nitrides and polar quantum structures. Basic bandstructure issues arediscussed (tight binding formalism, k.p formalism, effective mass approach, etc.) for semiconductors and quantum well systems. Particular attention is paid to use of strained systems and to polar strained materials. Phonons are then discussed before presenting transport theory. High field transport (Monte Carlo methods) and optical processes critical in modern devices are covered.
