Objectives of the course
The course deals with High Frequency devices that now represent essential and critical technologies for the success of many telecommunication products. Such technologies serve the rapidly growing wireless communications market. They depend on many compound semiconductors composed of elements from group III -V, II-VI and I-VII.
Technological and electrical features are analyzed for active devices encompassing parameters such as operating frequency and the application targets (high frequency RF and optoelectronics front-end)
Physics of the semiconductor devices.
The course is mainly organized on the following topics:
-Foundamentals of quantum mechanics
-Semicondutcors for high frequency applications: compound semiconductors (III-V,II-VI,I-VII)
-Gallium Arsenide technologies: MESFETs epitaxial and implanted
-Optoelectronics devices for optical communications: LED, Laser, photodiode PIN and APD.
