The "information revolution" would have been impossible without the materials known as semiconductors. The properties of these materials, particularly the ability to create transistors and diodes through doping with impurities and control of the local potential by gates, are essential to microelectronics.This book is an introductory text on electron transport in semiconductor material and is written for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates. The book provides a thorough treatment of modem approaches to the transport properties of semiconductors and their calculation. It also introduces those aspects of solid state physics that distinguish semiconductors from other materials an the properties that are vitally important to transport in those materials.Topics covered include: the Boltzmann equation, near equilibrium transport, and nonequilibrium high field transport, as well as multi-band transport and electron-electron interactions.
