|This seminar consists of lectures and research introductions. The purpose of the seminar is to learn the basics of semiconductor physical properties and solid state physics, which are essentially important for conducting research on semiconductor devices and semiconductor materials. In addition, in the course of research introduction, students introduce their own research and academic papers related to the lectures, and will obtain understanding of the basics and applications of their research fields and broaden their horizons.
Objectives: To obtain a systematic understanding of the characteristics of semiconductor materials and to obtain the comprehensive and creative knowledge necessary for research and development.

|Reference books will be specified with progress of the seminar.|
|1. The degree of achievement is evaluated through oral presentations and Q&A to presentations. Please try to learn a wide range of things, such as reading references and preparing appropriate resumes.
2. When they attend each seminar and make appropriate presentation and questions for their objectives, it is judged pass. When they can actively tackle difficult issues and make presentations and Q&A appropriately, they will reflect the evaluations according to their level.
|No requirement for taking the seminar.|
