Ziele

Learn the functional principle of optoelectronic devices. Accumulate knowledge of the basic physics and on the function of the most important devices (solar cell, photodiode, light emitting diode, semiconductor laser).

Inhalt

At first, the basic principles of semiconductors (lattice structure, band structure, doping) are introduced. In the second chapter, the elementary interactions between light and semiconductors are addressed. The third chapter contains the p-n-junction and hetero junctions. Then, the most important devices: solar cells, photodiodes, light emitting diodes, and semiconductor lasers are discussed in separate chapters. New devices like modulators and optical switches are referred to in the second last chapter and the last chapter consists of an overview about organic optoelectronics.
