Although roughly a half-century old, the field of study associated with semiconductor devices continues to be dynamic and exciting. New and improved devices are being developed at an almost maddening pace. This book should be viewed as a gateway to what the reader will hopefully agree is the fascinating realm of semiconductor devices.
