Advanced devices and their physical operation, providing a thorough description of those parts not usually covered in introductory electronics courses. These include Schottky and tunnel junctions, negative resistance devices used in wireless communication, homo-structure compound semiconductor transistors, hetero-structure (quantum effect) transistors, non-volatile memory devices, photonic devices such as LEDs and solid-state lasers, solar cells, photo-detectors and camera imagers, as well as bio-related components. Special consideration will be given to achieve an understanding of noise processes that limit electronic device performance. In all cases, system-level applications will be illustrated.
