Course Overview

Semiconductors are present in most of the electronic devices that we use and we cannot imagine our lives without these devices.

This course will provide participants with an understanding of semiconductor physics and aspects of electrical conduction in semiconductors. With this background, the participants will be able to understand the role of semiconductors in electronic devices.

Who Should Attend

Participants who are interested to gain insights into the semiconductor industry and who want to deepen their skills in Wafer Fabrication.

What You'll Learn

At the end of this course, you will be able to:


  1. List the constituents in an atom

  2. State Bohr’s postulates

  3. Explain the excitation energy of an electron in an atom

  4. Explain the ionization energy of an electron in an atom

  5. Explain the arrangement of electrons in an atom

  6. Explain the formation of energy bands

  7. Classify solids based on the energy band model

  8. Explain the difference between elemental and compound semiconductors

  9. Describe the energy band diagrams of intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors

  10. Explain Fermi level and its location for intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors

  11. Define electron affinity and work function

  12. Explain drift and diffusion of carriers



Mode of Assessment


Quizzes – measure participants’ understanding of key concepts and application of concepts learnt for each topic
