Course Description

In this engineering course, you will learn about diodes, bipolar junction transistors, MOSFETs and semiconductor properties.

This course is part 1 of a series that explain the basis of the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials including semiconductors, metals, organics, and insulators. You will learn how devices are built to take advantage of these properties. This is illustrated with a wide range of devices, placing a strong emphasis on new and emerging technologies.

Part 2 - 3.15.2x: Optical Materials and Devices
Part 3 - 3.15.3x: Magnetic Materials and Devices

I took this course in 2015, when all three of the wide-ranging topics were included in a single session. The focus throughout is on theoretical underpinnings and key devices that have emerged from them. The three segments together represent an online version of the residential 3.15 course and were prepared for MIT students. Prof. Ross has generously made them available through edX, but she did not participate in the edX course itself. Instead, course manager Jessica Sandland, a great teacher in her own right, did an excellent job administering homework assignments and exams, answering our questions, and keeping everything on track. Prof. Ross begins with a thorough foundational introduction, and then moves on to applications and devices. This installment of 3.15, which covers semiconductors, is by far the most rigorous of the three and includes an introduction to diodes, transistors, and photovoltaics. Do not get discouraged! Som...

Some of the homework assignments and exam questions come as quite a challenge given the easily followed lectures. For me, a textbook was essential. Fortunately, Prof. Chenming Hu has written perhaps the best one out there and offers it free online. Download and read it. When you finish this course, you will *really* understand semiconductors at a deep working level, from quantum states to band structures to electrical behavior. And know that the next two installments of the course are easier.

The course contents, instructor and provider all are at their best but it goes so fast, if the speed is lowered then it will be amazing as well as if a good advisor for exercises solution is provided then this will be outstanding.

This is best course to learn semiconductor fundamentals, electron behavior and components working mechanism. An Introduction nano devices which enables me to explore science in much deeper. During summer holidays, so much free time to spend time in this course. I will enroll for verified section to take as challenge. So lucky to have this course and great lectures. Thanks to edx.
