Physics of Semiconductor Devices is a comprehensive, up-to-date text providing a lucid perspective of the important concepts and applications of semiconductor devices. The book emphasises a logical development of the subject and maintains a rigour in the analytical discussions. A description of the quantum mechanical tunnel effect on the principles of quantum measurement and observations is also presented, along with a discussion of its application in the analysis of I-V characteristics of tunnel devices. In this revised edition, the basic outline of the book and its underlying philosophy remain unchanged. The discussions on “quantum mechanical tunnelling” have been updated. Most of the problems in the first edition have been retained and a large number of problems have been added both as solved examples and as unsolved exercises.

Dilip Kumar Roy has taught and guided research at IIT, Delhi since 1967. His research was done at Semiconductor Research Institute, Tohoku University, Japan. He was a resident visitor at the A.T.& T Bell Laboratories, USA as a Rotary Foundation Fellow in 1986 and he was a visiting fellow of the Indian National Science Academy at the Institute of Microelectronic Technology and Superpure Materials, USSR in 1989. He taught at Egerton University, Kenya during 1989-91 and at the Institute of Postgraduate Studies and Research, University of Malaya, Malaysia during 1996-2000. Presently, he is a Professor of Electronics and Communications at the Institute of Technology and Management, Gurgaon.
