Objectives

This chapter equips the reader with the tools for studying the basic electronics namely, basics of crystal structures, the concept of energy bands, the density-of-states function of the carriers in semiconductors, the carrier statistics, and how the current in an almost filled band can be analysed using the vital concept of holes. Two types of transport mechanisms will be considered in this context. Firstly, the drift of carriers in the presence ...
