Course description and aims

This course focuses on the physics of advanced functional electronic devices and issues for their application. Topics include spin quantum functional devices, power devices, and thin film devices (displays, and sensors).
Advanced functional electronic devices are important for innovation in various fields such as environment, energy, medical treatment, health care, and information and communication. This course provides the basics of physics and device characteristics of advanced functional electron devices, and issues for their applications. Students will have chances to solve exercises by applying knowledge acquired in this course, and to give presentations.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Express the physics of advanced functional electronic devices
2) Explain the issues and key technologies for the applications
3) Express the physical principles and operational characteristics of spin quantum devices, power devices, and thin film devices

Keywords

spin quantum functional devices, power devices, thin film devices, displays, sensors

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

At the beginning of each class, solutions to drills assigned in the previous class are reviewed. In the class, problems related to what is taught on that day are given. Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Assessment criteria and methods

Students will be assessed on their understanding of the power devices, spin quantum functional devices, thin film devices, artificial photosynthesis, displays, sensors, and their ability to apply them to solve problems. Students' course scores are based on final report (~70%) and exercise problems during each class (~30%).
