•Course Purpose
[Important Notice: this lecture has been completely changed from FY2019.]

The electronic properties of conduction electrons in the periodic fields in crystalline solids are not only interesting from the viewpoint of basic physics but also useful for us as various electronic devices. In this lecture, we will study various electronic properties and functions exhibited by metals and semiconductors, and aim to understand their origins and operating principles based on solid-state physics.

Goals and objectives:
Understanding various electronic properties that appear in crystalline solids.
Understanding the operating principles of various semiconductor devices.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Solid State Physics 1-4

•Course Topics
The first and second half will focus on the electronic properties of solids and semiconductor devices, respectively. The contents of each are as follows. Prepare for the next class and understand the meaning of technical terms.

1. Electronic Properties of Solids
Peierls Transition
Strongly Correlated Electron System
Measurement of Fermi Surfaces

2. Semiconductor Devices
Metal-semiconductor Contact
Field Effect Transistor
Photoelectric Device

Materials will be distributed each time.

•Additional Reading
C. Kittel, Introduction to Solid State Physics (John Wiley & Sons)
S. M. Sze and K. K. Ng, Physics of Semiconductor Devices (John Wiley & Sons)

•Grade Assessment
The criterion to receive academic credit is to understand the basic concepts of electronic properties of solids and semiconductor devices. Grades are evaluated by taking tests in the first and second half of the class. The results of the two tests are summed up, and a score of at least 60 out of 100 is the passing criterion.

There is no requirement for taking this lecture.

•Contacting Faculty
Questions are welcome within or after each lecture.
