The University of Sheffield
Semiconductor Photonics and Electronics
Semiconductor photonics and electronics underpin many areas of advanced and emerging technologies, from high efficiency LED lighting to advanced photovoltaics and lasers for communications. This course covers fundamentals through to cutting edge research in areas such as GaN materials and devices (behind the solid state lighting LED revolution), nanoscaled materials and devices, and photonic device manufacture. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the materials and device theory whilst developing excellent practical experimental skills in extensive semiconductor cleanroom lab-work, giving you a competitive edge for work in industry or further study.
At least a 2.1 Honours degree from a good UK university or an equivalent international degree qualification. The applicants background may be in the electronic educational environment (EEE) or any discipline involving significant mathematical competence, including physics, maths and other branches of engineering. Applicants with a 2.2 or equivalent, or industrial experience are encouraged to apply.
Semiconductor Materials; Principles of Semiconductor Device Technology; Packaging and Reliability of Microsystems; Nanoscale Electronic Devices; Energy Efficient Semiconductor Devices; Optical Communication Devices and Systems; Compound Semiconductor Device Manufacture; Major Research Project.
Assessment is by examinations, coursework or reports, and a dissertation with poster presentation.
