    The first true introduction to semiconductor optoelectronic devices, this book provides an accessible, well-organized overview of optoelectric devices that emphasizes basic principles.

    This edition has enhanced readability and depth of coverage with expanded explanations of materials,

    device phenomena, and recent developments in the field. The book's coverage begins with an optional

    review of key concepts such as properties of compound semiconductors, quantum mechanics,

    semiconductor statistics, carrier transport properties, optical processes, and junction theory. The text

    then gradually progresses to more advanced topics.
