About the Authors
  • This authoritative account of electronic and optoelectronic devices operating at frequencies greater than 1 GHz covers the concepts and fundamental principles of operation, and, uniquely, their circuit applications too. Key features include: • a comprehensive coverage of electron devices, such as MESFET, HEMT, RF MOSFET, BJT and HBT, and their models • discussions of semiconductor devices fabricated in a variety of material systems, such as Si, III-V compound semiconductors, and Si-Ge • a description of light-emitting diodes, semiconductor lasers and photodetectors • plentiful real-world examples • end-of-chapter problems to test understanding of the material covered From crystal structure to atomic bonding, recombination and radiation in semiconductors to p-n junctions and heterojunctions, a wide range of critical topics is covered. Optimization algorithms, such as simulated annealing and neural network applications, are also discussed. Graduate students in electrical engineering, industry professionals and researchers will all find this a valuable resource.

    • Presents both the fundamental principles of operation and the circuit applications of electronic and optoelectronic devices
    • An executive summary at the beginning of each chapter gives an overview of the material covered
    • Numerous examples illustrate the key topics, whilst end-of-chapter problems test understanding

    Reviews & endorsements

    'If you need one book to refresh yourself regarding semiconductors or to get an overview of modern high-speed semiconductors, then this is an excellent choice. I would think this would make a good text for a graduate overview course in semiconductor devices. This book has a good balance of depth and breadth of material. There are enough fundamentals and details to create a good foundation for the student, and there is enough breadth to be a useful cross-section of the industry.' IEEE Microwave Magazine
