MATS 360 - Introduction to Electronic Materials

Credit Hours: 4
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 2

This course is an introduction to the fundamental properties of semiconductors used in electronic, optoelectronic, and photovoltaic fields. The emphasis will be on material electronic and optical properties, which are intertwined with crystal structure and chemical composition of such materials. Laboratory activities will be carried out in the form of problem-solving through computer simulations of material properties, as well as material electric and optical characterization. Students will have hands-on measurements of resistivity of silicon, photoconductivity, and quantum efficiency spectroscopy of optical-electron conversion in solar cells and optical sensors.
Prerequisite: MATS 204  and CHEM 161  and CHEM 161L  and (PHYS 116  or PHYS 126  ) and PHYS 126L
