Graduate Courses:


EEC240 – Semiconductor Devices

Physical principles, characteristics and models of various semiconductor devices including: P-N junction and metal-insulator-semiconductor diodes, junction and insulated gated field effect transistors

EEC 241 – Molecular Electronics (currently EEC289L Special Topic)

This interdisciplinary course covers a broad range of topics to introduce students to charge transport in molecular systems. The focus is on understanding how organic and biological systems can transport charge and how transport differs in these low-dimensional systems. After developing this background the course continues by discussing how these components can be used in nanoscale electronic devices such as transistors, diodes, resistors, etc. Finally, we overview different experimental techniques that have been developed to contact and measure these atomic-scale systems.
