EE 3405:Electronic Materials

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: EE 2401  or may be taken concurrently
This course focuses on the study of important properties of materials (such as electronic properties, thermal properties, magnetic properties, dielectric properties, optical properties, crystallographic and electronic defects) which play important role in the device operation and are engineered for various electrical engineering applications. The course covers topics starting from the elementary materials science concepts and fundamental quantum mechanics to modern device applications including superconductors, supercapacitors, piezoelectricity, magnetic and optical data storage technologies, communication via optical fiber etc. Also the course includes various measurement techniques to probe electronic, crystallographic, and structural properties of materials including resistivity and Hall effect measurements, X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. Device design and fabrication aspects are discussed in correlation with the material properties. The core knowledge obtained in this course are applicable to a wide range of areas within electrical engineering discipline, such as Photonics, Semiconductors & Microelectronics, Nano-scale electronics, Electric Machine Design & Electromagnetics etc.
