Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in electrical and computer engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 0 to 4 undergraduate hours. 0 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
Prerequisites: Phys 214 & Co-reqs: ECE 340. This course explores the energy conversion devices from fundamentals to system-level issues. The modern devices to be explored include light emitting diodes and solar cells. Topics include energy transfer between photons and electron-hole pairs, light emission and capture, emission and absorption engineering via device simulation/design, radiative and non-radiative processes in devices, electrical and optical characteristics, carrier diffusion and mobility, light extraction and trapping, and thermal management for high power high efficiency energy conversion devices. Prerequisites: Phys 214 & Co-reqs: ECE 340.
