3.15 Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Materials and Devices


Class Info

Explores the relationships between the performance of electrical, optical, and magnetic devices and the microstructural and defect characteristics of the materials from which they are constructed. Features a device-motivated approach that places strong emphasis on the design of functional materials for emerging technologies. Applications center around diodes, transistors, memristors, batteries, photodetectors, solar cells (photovoltaics) and solar-to-fuel converters, displays, light emitting diodes, lasers, optical fibers and optical communications, photonic devices, magnetic data storage and spintronics.

This class has 3.024 as a prerequisite.

3.15 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by J. L.M. Rupp.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 8-119.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
