Solid-State Device Theory

Solid-State Device Theory

Written by Tony R. Kuphaldt, this chapter of All About Circuit's third volume on Semiconductors "will cover the physics behind the operation of semiconductor devices and show how these principles are applied in several different types of semiconductor devices." The chapter is divided up into fifteen sections, on topics from quantum physics to junction diodes to thyristors. Each section has clear illustrations and a concise, bulleted review of what was covered at the end, and the resource as a whole is excellent for use in applied physics classrooms.
