Dr. Umesh K. Mishra is Professor at UC Santa Barbara in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His areas of focus include: Electronics and Photonics: high-speed transistors, semiconductor device physics, quantum electronics, optical control, design and fabrication of millimeter-wave devices, in situation processing and integration techniques. Professor Mishra joined the College's ECE Department in 1990 from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University. A recognized leader in the area of high-speed field effect transistors, Dr. Mishra has made major contributions at every laboratory and academic institution for which he has worked, including: Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, California; the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor; and General Electric, Syracuse, New York. His current research areas attempt to develop an understanding of novel materials and extend them into applications. He is the Director of the AFOSR PRET Center for Non-Stoichiometric Semiconductors and of the ONR MURI Center (IMPACT), which relates to the application of SiC and GaN based transistors for power amplification. In 1989 Dr. Mishra received the Presidential Young Investigator Award from the National Science Foundation. In 1992 he received the Young Scientist of the Year Award from the International Symposium on GaAs and Related Compounds. He was elected as a Fellow of IEEE in 1995. Jasprit Singh joined the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1985 and he is Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department.

From the reviews:
"This book is a course very well written and comprehensive dedicated to semiconductors. The authors have detailed fundamental concepts from basic physics until research and development topics. ... Important semiconductors properties are summarized in useful tables at the end of the book. To help students to be familiar with the theory, examples are detailed in the text and at the end of each chapter exercises are proposed." (Grégory Guisbiers, Physicalia, Vol. 30 (2), 2008)
"This is a classical textbook about the physics of semiconductor devices. It is intended for electrical engineers, but is also useful for young physicists. The book is very clear and covers all the main knowledge necessary for a graduate student in the area of semiconductors ... . It contains many helpful figures, examples and problem sets. This book is also a good guide for teachers. In addition, advanced researchers could use it because the needed information is easy to find and extremely well synthesized." (Mircea Dragoman, Optics and Photonics News, September, 2008)
