Devices and Circuits
This authoritative account of electronic and optoelectronic devices covers the fundamental principles of operation, and, uniquely, their circuit applications too.
This authoritative account of electronic and optoelectronic devices operating at frequencies greater than 1 GHz covers the concepts and fundamental principles of operation, and, uniquely, their circuit applications too. Key features include: * a comprehensive coverage of electron devices, such as MESFET, HEMT, RF MOSFET, BJT and HBT, and their models * discussions of semiconductor devices fabricated in a variety of material systems, such as Si, III-V compound semiconductors, and Si-Ge * a description of light-emitting diodes, semiconductor lasers and photodetectors * plentiful real-world examples * end-of-chapter problems to test understanding of the material covered From crystal structure to atomic bonding, recombination and radiation in semiconductors to p-n junctions and heterojunctions, a wide range of critical topics is covered. Optimization algorithms, such as simulated annealing and neural network applications, are also discussed. Graduate students in electrical engineering, industry professionals and researchers will all find this a valuable resource.
