Item description for The Physics of Semiconductors: An Introduction Including Devices and Nanophysics by Marius Grundmann...
The Physics of Semiconductors provides material for a comprehensive upper-level-undergraduate and graduate course on the subject, guiding readers to the point where they can choose a special topic and begin supervised research. The textbook provides a balance between essential aspects of solid-state and semiconductor physics, on the one hand, and the principles of various semiconductor devices and their applications in electronic and photonic devices, on the other. It highlights many practical aspects of semiconductors such as alloys, strain, heterostructures, nanostructures, that are necessary in modern semiconductor research but typically omitted in textbooks. For the interested reader some additional advanced topics are included, such as Bragg mirrors, resonators, polarized and magnetic semiconductors are included. Also supplied are explicit formulas for many results, to support better understanding. The Physics of Semiconductors requires little or no prior knowledge of solid-state physics and evolved from a highy regarded two-semester courseat the University of Leipzig.

Nice survey of modern semiconductor science Nov 10, 2006
This book is extremely well illustrated. It is a pleasure thumbing through the book and learning something in a new area just by looking at all the diagrams and pictures. However, the discussions of semiconductor devices are pretty sketchy, and formula derivations are mostly non-existent. For example, the book gives expressions for the different mobility limits for ionized impurity and phonon scattering, but does not derive any of them like Seeger would, although references are given. Unlike the Seeger classic, in its 9th edition, where new topics kind of look like they were just thrown in, this book has a more coherent integrated treatment of "new" topics with the older classical topics. If you want in-depth discussions, you will likely be disappointed. However, if you are looking for a broad survey of modern areas of interest in semiconductor physics and technology, with lots of well-chosen figures and diagrams, this is a fine book.
