Semiconductor Device Physics and Design teaches readers how to approach device design from the point of view of someone who wants to improve devices and can see the opportunity and challenges. It begins with coverage of basic physics concepts, including the physics behind polar heterostructures and strained heterostructures. The book then details the important devices ranging from p-n diodes to bipolar and field effect devices. By relating device design to device performance and then relating device needs to system use the student can see how device design works in the real world.

From the reviews:
"This book is a course very well written and comprehensive dedicated to semiconductors. The authors have detailed fundamental concepts from basic physics until research and development topics. ... Important semiconductors properties are summarized in useful tables at the end of the book. To help students to be familiar with the theory, examples are detailed in the text and at the end of each chapter exercises are proposed." (Gregory Guisbiers, Physicalia, Vol. 30 (2), 2008)
"This is a classical textbook about the physics of semiconductor devices. It is intended for electrical engineers, but is also useful for young physicists. The book is very clear and covers all the main knowledge necessary for a graduate student in the area of semiconductors ... . It contains many helpful figures, examples and problem sets. This book is also a good guide for teachers. In addition, advanced researchers could use it because the needed information is easy to find and extremely well synthesized." (Mircea Dragoman, Optics and Photonics News, September, 2008)
