Prof. Jasprit Singh co-authors new book for students

Semiconductor Device Physics and Design, recently published by Springer, is written by Profs. Umesh Mishra (UC Santa Barbara; briefly at Michigan 1985-1987) and Jasprit Singh. This book, written for undergraduate seniors and graduate students, addresses issues in modern device design from the point of view of physics, material properties, application needs and technology challenges. In addition to covering traditional devices, it addresses new devices based on nitride technologies, examining new physics of polarization in these materials. The book also provides insight into optimizing device designs for various applications. These insights will be valuable for students as well as engineers in the field.
