Physics of Semiconductors and Nanostructures
Jyoti Prasad Banerjee, Suranjana Banerjee
This book covers the physics of semiconductor materials, basic concepts of quantum mechanics and nanoelectronics, band theory of solids, and transport phenomena in semiconductors, along with the physics of low-dimensional quantum nanostructures, heterojunctions, and superlattices. It supplies a solid foundation for understanding the principles of operation and application of different types of microelectronic, optoelectronic, and quantum-effect devices based on semiconductor materials and nanostructures. Complete with exercises, the text is intended for junior- and senior-level undergraduate students of electrical and electronics engineering, physics, and materials science.
