This introductory tutorial develops a picture of how electrons behave in semiconductor materials and applies it to functional descriptions of the basic semiconductor devices: the P-N junction, heterojunction, the bipolar transistor and the FET. The effects of material properties will also be discussed.

The course is typically a live two hour online event but the recording can be made available on demand and online to support students requiring a more convenient viewing time.
