This course is an introduction to semiconductor and electronic devices. Crystal properties of semiconductor materials will be described. After a review of the Bohr model and quantum mechanics Schrodinger equation will be solved. Energy bands and charge carriers in semiconductors will be described. Theory of forward-and reverse-biased p-n junction and transistor will be presented. Operation of field effect transistor will be explained. There will be experiments to relate theory to the electronic devices.
