Format: Hardcover
I decided to write this review after reading the previous reviews to this book. Apparently, a couple of the reviewers think of this book as a text book, which it is not. Even though the first edition was published in 1968, and the second in 1981, this book is still a very useful reference to anyone who works in the field of semiconductor device physics. The author presupposes a good amount of knowledge, and does not try to lead the reader "by hand" through all the details in the derivation of the mathematical expressions. I recommend this book to all serious scholars at the senior level and beyond, -as a reference book-.

Format: Hardcover
This book is one of the major references for people in the scientific end of the semiconductor field. It is a good reference for practicing scientists in the semiconductor and applied solid-state physics fields. It contains good treatments of most of the topics expected in a semiconductor physics book. Surprisingly, its readability remains high for a work of this breadth. This is not a mainstream book for dilettantes.

Format: Hardcover
The Physics of Semiconductor Devices is a classic in the field, containing all the necessary knowledge as of 1981. The classic devices (diodes, transistors, microwave devices) are covered clearly and exhaustively. The book is lacking in its treatment of semiconductor heterostructures, which are key to modern devices but were not nearly as central two decades ago. One hopes that a 3rd edition is in the works.

Format: Hardcover
As well known, this book is one of the classic books for semicoductor physics. It provides a lot of information in various devices, although some probably is outdated. However, as I know, the author was trying to tell the readers why and how semiconductor devices become what we see today. Because only we know about what the pioneers thinked, we can further modify or invite new semiconductor devices. I must agree that this book is not so easy to follow and read, but, don't froget, this book is devoted for advanced semiconductor physics course. It assumes the reader is already familiar with some foundamental semiconductor knowledge!

Format: Hardcover
This is not a good book to study semiconductor devices.In the reality it is a patchwork of uncorrelated articles about various devices lacking unity of vision and clearness in the exposition.Very often it happened to me to use other 2 or 3 other books only to understand Sze .And the author is extremely fond of making reference to final formulas without explaining the logical developement used.And now the book is dated too:so do not buy this book,try instead "Device eletronics for integrated circuits" by Muller and Kamins which is advanced and well conceived too!
