Course content

Course description

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.

How we teach

You’ll be taught by academics who are leaders in their field. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) puts us among the UK top five for this subject. Our courses are centred around finding solutions to problems, in lectures, seminars, exercises and through project work.

First-class facilities

Semiconductor Materials and Devices

LED, laser photodetectors and transistor design, a high-tech field-emission gun transmission electron microscope (FEGTEM), a focused ion beam (FIB) milling facility, and electron beam lithographic equipment.

Our state-of-the-art semiconductor growth and processing equipment is housed in an extensive clean room complex as part of the EPSRC’s National Centre for III-V Technologies.

Our investment in semiconductor research equipment in the last 12 months totals £6million.

Electrical Machines and Drives

Specialist facilities for the design and manufacture of electromagnetic machines, dynamometer test cells, a high-speed motor test pit, environmental test chambers, electronic packaging and EMC testing facilities, Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre for Advanced Electrical Machines and Drives.

Communications

Advanced anechoic chambers for antenna design and materials characterisation, a lab for calibrated RF dosimetry of tissue to assess pathogenic effects of electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones, extensive CAD electromagnetic analysis tools.

Core modules

  • 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

Teaching and assessment

Research-led teaching, lectures, laboratories, seminars and tutorials. A large practical module covers the design, manufacture and characterisation of a semiconductor component, such as a laser or light emitting diode.

This involves background tutorials and hands-on practical work in the UK’s national III-V semiconductor facility.

Assessment is by examinations, coursework or reports, and a dissertation with poster presentation.
