The objective of this course is to provide the students with an in-depth understanding of the principles of modern solid state electronic devices. Emphasis is on nanoscale devices and devices made of nanoscale materials. The course begins with a brief review of quantum theory of solids, properties of solid nanostructures, and fundamental principles of conventional electronic devices. In-depth discussion on specific nanoscale devices allows students to gain knowledge in the operational principles of state-of-the-art technology in electronic devices, including hot electron transistors, high electron mobility transistors, resonant tunneling diodes, single electron transistors, and molecular devices.
