From the Back Cover
This classic book has set the standard for advanced study and reference in the semiconductor device field. Now completely updated and reorganized to reflect the tremendous advances in device concepts and performance, this Third Edition remains the most detailed and exhaustive single source of information on the most important semiconductor devices. It gives readers immediate access to detailed descriptions of the underlying physics and performance characteristics of all major bipolar, field-effect, microwave, photonic, and sensor devices.
Designed for graduate textbook adoptions and reference needs, this new edition includes:
- A complete update of the latest developments
- New devices such as three-dimensional MOSFETs, MODFETs, resonant-tunneling diodes, semiconductor sensors, quantum-cascade lasers, single-electron transistors, real-space transfer devices, and more
- Materials completely reorganized
- Problem sets at the end of each chapter
- All figures reproduced at the highest quality
Physics of Semiconductor Devices, Third Edition offers engineers, research scientists, faculty, and students a practical basis for understanding the most important devices in use today and for evaluating future device performance and limitations.
About the Author
Kwok K. Ng received his PhD from Columbia University in 1979 and BS from Rutgers University in 1975, both in electrical engineering. He joined Bell Laboratories of AT&T in Murray Hill, New Jersey, in 1980, which spun off as part of Lucent Technologies in 1996. He became affiliated with Agere Systems in Allentown, Pennsylvania, as the microelectronics unit became independent in 2001. He has been with MVC in San Jose, California, since 2005. Dr. Ng has also held positions as editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters and liaison to IEEE Press. He is the author of the Complete Guide to Semiconductor Devices, Second Edition (Wiley).
