Course Descriptions

Engineering Physics at Rose-Hulman will provide students with a unique opportunity to learn the foundation concepts of physics and make a concentrated study in micro and nano technology. Engineering physicist will be able to apply both scientific and engineering approaches to a wide variety of problems which otherwise is not possible with any traditional engineering or science degree.

EP 506 - Semiconductor Devices & Fabrication

Physical properties and applications of semiconductor devices including bipolar junction transistors (BJT), metal-semiconductor contacts (Schottky and ohmic), junction field effect transistors (JFET and MESFET), metal-oxidesemiconductor (MOS) interfaces and field effect transistors (MOSFET and CMOS), photoconductors, photodetectors (PIN and APD), solar cells, light emitting diodes (LED), and laser diodes. Laboratory experiments will cover the following topics: characterization of semiconductor devices, op-amps, CMOS, NAND and other logic and analog components. Graduate credit requires a more advanced project. Cross-listed with EP 406.
