Introduction to Semiconductor Materials
This lecture will focus on various materials, such as semiconductors, insulators, and metals, for high-performance nano-devices. The operation principles of semiconductor devices such as PN junction and MOS transistors, expected roles of novel device materials for ultra-large scale integrated circuits and power devices, and the fabrication process of such devices will be explained. The introductions of research activities related to nano-materials in Materials Engineering department will be also made. This is an intensive course and will be in English.
