Book Summary:
Fuelled by rapid growth in the communications industry, compound heterostructures and related high-speed semiconductor devices are spearheading the drive toward smaller, faster and lower-power electronics.
High-Speed Heterostructure Devices is a textbook on modern high-speed semiconductor devices intended for both graduate students and practicing engineers. This book is concerned with the underlying physics of heterostructures as well as practical analytical techniques for modeling and simulating these devices. Emphasis is placed on heterostructure devices of the present and of the immediate future such as the MODFET, HBT and RTD. The principles of operation of other devices such as the Bloch Oscillator, RITD, Gunn diode, quantum cascade laser and SOI and LD MOSFETs are also introduced.
Initially developed for a graduate course taught at The Ohio State University, the book comes with a complete set of homework problems and a web link to homework solutions and MATLAB programs supporting the lecture material.

Patrick Roblin is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at The Ohio State University.

Hans Rohdin is a member of the technical staff at Agilent Laboratories in Palo Alto, California.
