What you should prepare first to take up the device physics research domain:
You should be having a good command in the following area:
- Quantum mechanics- from basics to perturbation theory in both integral approach and operator approach
- Solid State devices and physics
You may go through any of these vital books:
- C.M. Wolfe, Physical Properties of Semiconductors, Longman Higher Education Press
- Y. Tsividis, Operation and modeling of MOS transistors, Oxford Press
- Y. Taur and T.H Ning, Fundamentals of Modern VLSI Design, Cambridge University Press,
- Solid State Electronic Devices By B. G. Streetman and S. Banerjee.
- J. P. Collenge, FinFETs and Other Multigate Transistors, Springer Press
- Recent Journals
There are several PhD positions available in the lab.
Desirable: You should be highly motivated with strong interest in learning new ideas and exploring yourself. Your background should be in any Master's discipline in Engineering/Physics (+ 1 year experience in any recognised R&D lab)/Electronic Science (+1 year experience in any recognised R&D lab) with good knowledge in solid state devices and partial differential equations and linear algebra.
Eligibility: You should be a fresh ME/ MTech / MS / MSc (Engg) / MSc (Physics (+ 1 year experience in any recognised R&D lab)/Electronic Science (+ 1 year experience in any recognised R&D lab)) with a minimum of 60% or an equivalent grade point. You must have a high and valid GATE / CSIR or UGC NET score. If you are interested to join us, please write me with a statement of purpose and research statement. Your research statement should be very focussed. Please see the home page for our research interest, but these are not limited. You are also encouraged to write your research proposal in other areas of nanoelectronics, like spintronics, nanoscale fluid flow, etc, which you like.
Financial aid: All candidates admitted to the Ph.D program are eligible for teaching /research assistantships/fellowships as per MHRD norms. You are also encouraged to apply for
