About the Course

This course can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5631, part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. This course presents in-depth discussion and analysis of pn junction and metal-semiconductor contacts including equilibrium behavior, current and capacitance responses under bias, breakdown, non-rectifying behavior, and surface effect. You'll work through sophisticated analysis and application to electronic devices. At the end of this course learners will be able to: 1. Analyze pn junction at equilibrium and under bias, capacitance and current characteristics, and breakdown behavior 2. Analyze metal-semiconductor contact at equilibrium and under bias, capacitance and current characteristics, non-rectifying contact and surface effects...

Lectures are very informative, and the quiz questions truly test the way person reasons and determines solution to given operating conditions for junction contacts.

THE CONCEPTS WERE SIMPLE AND NO COMPLEX TERMINOLOGY IS USED, BUT PROBLEMS IN QUIZ FROM SEEK 3 & 4 ,WERE DIFFICULT TO SOLVE JUST FROM LISTENING TO THE LECTURES.

This course is okay. However, the Homework quiz requires a lot of effort to get through. A few of the questions asked in the quiz are not related to the covered topics. It takes a lot of effort to solve and get correct answers for an individual. In week 3, the value of Richardson's constant could have been mentioned for Silicon and GaAs. In week 4, solving the 7 questions required a lot of effort. They are not in accordance with/sync with what is taught in week 4.

Thanks

The course does force the learner to understand PN junctions and Metal-Semiconductor Conducts in order to pass. The lectures are also good on their own. However, the assignments are NOT fully covered by the information presented in lecture, so the course is NOT standalone. There should a be a warning mentioned at the beginning of the course that external sources are required for success.

The course is not self sufficient. It is difficult to solve quiz assignments 3 and 4 only on the basis of the video lectures.

Quizzes and lectures do not reflect same information. No reference text is given either.

There should not be problems that are not related to the videos. None of the problems of HW4 can be solved from the content of the lecture, and there are other problems that you have to look up for equations or explanations that are not in the lecture.

Some quiz questions are not related to the content taught. Prior experience will be helpful.
