EE 208. Semiconductor Optoelectronic Devices (3-0-3)
Materials for optoelectronics, optical processes in semiconductors, absorption and radiation, transition rates and carrier lifetime. Principles of LEDs, lasers, photodetectors, modulators and solar cells. Optoelectronic integrated circuits. Designs, demonstrations and projects related to optoelectronic device phenomena.
Optical processes in semiconductors, spontaneous emission, absorption gain, stimulated emission. Principles of light-emitting diodes, including transient effects, spectral and spatial radiation fields. Principles of semiconducting lasers, gain-current relationships, radiation fields, optical confinement and transient effects.
Enrolled students can access course material through KAUST's Blackboard.
Students are not restricted to particular program courses only. For example, MSE courses are often selected by EE students as well.
