##### Introduction to Semiconductor Devices

This post contains my lecture notes of taking the course VE320: Introduction to Semiconductor Devices at UM-SJTU Joint Institute.
Chapter 1: The Crystal Structure of Solids Unit cell vs. primitive cell primitive cell: smallest unit cell possible Three lattice types Simple cubic Body-centered cubic Face-centered cubic Volume density = $\dfrac{\text{number of atoms per unit cell}}{a^3}$ Unit: 1 Angstrom = 1e-10 m Miller Index: $(\frac{1}{x\text{-intersect}},\frac{1}{y\text{-intersect}},\frac{1}{z\text{-intersect}})\times\text{lcm}(x,y,z)$ (100) plane, (110) plane, (111) plane [100] direction, [110] direction, [111] direction Chapter 2: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics Plank’s constant: $h=6.
