\* 15876-6, Streetman, Solid State ElectronicDevices, 4/E *\Engineers and scientists whodeal with electronics must continually be involvedin professional up-dating and self-education inorder to keep abreast of new devices andprocesses. This modern introduction to existingsolid state electronic devices surveys thestate-of-the-art in theory, applications, and thelatest devices. It discusses both silicon andsemiconductors -- to reflect their continuinggrowth in importance for emerging optoelectronicand high-speed device applications.First reviews the nature ofsemiconductors and conduction processes in solids;then describes the p-n junction and some of itsapplications and the principles of transistoroperation and their application to integratedcircuits; and concludes by exploring theapplications of the theory of junctions andconduction processes to lasers, switching devices,and microwave devices. Includes substantivepractice problems and reading lists ofprofessional literature for both introductory andquantitative treatments of selected topics.For practicing engineers andscientists who want to update their knowledge ofmodern electronics for a fuller understanding ofthe current literature on new devices andapplications.
New edition of a widely used introductory textbook which provides readers with an understanding of existing devices and develops the tools for understanding future devices and applications. Coverage includes the basics of semiconductor materials and conduction processes in solids required to understand p-n junctions, transistors, and other devices, and definition of terms and concepts as they relate to a broad range of devices.
