Courses currently taught by Prof. Sturm include:
ELE 545 Electronic Devices:
Introduction to principles of electron behavior in semiconductors and applications to device physics. Band diagrams, Metal-semiconductor contacts, Schottky barriers, p-n junctions. MOS electronics, FET's, bipolar transistor, solar cell, detector, LED, microwave devices.
MSE 302 Laboratory Techniques in Materials Science and Engineering:
A hands-on introduction to the use of laboratory techniques for processing and characterization in materials science. Structure-property relations will be explored through experiments in mechanical, optical, biological, and electronic properties of materials. The underlying theories and lab techniques will be explained in two weekly lectures covering such topics as electronic and mechanical properties, electron microscopy, electron diffraction and materials processing.
