FFFN30/FYST15 - Semiconductor Physics

Courses to take next

In the second half of the fall term, there is "Physics of low-dimensional structures" (FFFN35/FYST24).

In the first part of spring; there is High-speed devices (given at the EIT department), course-id EITP01/FYST34. This is offered only every second year! After spring 2018 the next time is spring 2020.

Parallel there is Optoelectronics and Optical Communication (FFFN25/FYST50), co-taught by Solid State Physics and Atomic Physics.

Nanoelectronics (EITP05/FYST39) is offered the second half of the spring semester.

Course information 2017

The first lecture is on Tuesday the 29th of August at 13.15 in the Rydberg lecture Hall.

Lecturers and course coordinators Carina Fasth and Dan Hessman


The course book will be Semiconductor Devices: Physics and Technology, 3rd Edition, International student version, by Simon M. Sze, Ming-Kwei Lee. This book is generally expensive in online shops but can be bought at the campus bookstore KFS in Lund ( at a discounted price, estimated to be roughly 750 SEK.

The 2nd edition may also be used with minor inconvenience. Most chapters are not significantly changed between the 2nd and 3rd edition.

We will also discuss a few pages on metal-semiconductor interfaces from a different book, Physics of semiconductor devices, 3rd edition, by Sze and Ng, which can be accessed through the Physics library as an e-book (link, will only work within LU!). Relevant pages are roughly 139-144.
