Explores the operation of electronic and semiconductor devices, including: resistors, transparent conductors, capacitors, inductors, diodes and light emitting diodes, photovoltaics, photodiodes, bipolar junction and field effect transistors, organic electrochemical transistors, and various sensor devices. Laboratories will involve device characterization and implementation into simple circuits, data analysis, and function fitting. Some of the laboratories will involve partial fabrication of the devices. Previously offered as a special topics course. Recommended prerequisite: PHYS 1140. Recommended restriction: sophomores or juniors; seniors cannot enroll in the course.
