The students have basic knowledge in the physics of semiconductors and know the fundamental concepts. They can apply them for solving physical problems. The students can describe important phenomena of semiconductor physics both verbal and mathematically. In addition, they are able to apply the acquired knowledge to concrete problems and to carry out corresponding calculations.

Atomic models, Pauli principle, structure of the periodic table, types of bonding, band model, silicon bonding, doping, electron and hole conductivity, basic equations of semiconductor physics, deviations from thermodynamic equilibrium, diode, bipolar transistor, MOS transistor
