Good level for advanced undergraduate/1st-yr grad student March 14 2006
By Steven J. Wojtczuk - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Schubert (RPI) has written an excellent book on LEDs that manages to explain and derive simple quantitative models for many phenomena of current interest. He tackles issues such as resonant cavity LEDs, reliability/surface recombination issues, current spreading theory, etc. Many monographs are a compendium of results in the field with hundreds of references to papers, which are briefly discussed, and are written by several authors. In contrast, Schubert, while giving copious references, is the sole author, leading to a coherent presentation well suited to learning. There are plentiful and good figures and drawings, as well as many exercises and solutions integrated into the text. There are no back of chapter problems, but this is not really a text for lower level undergraduates.

for PHD only Sept. 19 2005
By H. Chow - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is for master , PHD or higher. Lots of graduate school physics, math. Researcher, scientest engineering grad. school student may find it useful for studying light emmiting semiconductor material. I was a electrical engineer myself. I am tring to find practical applications of LED and LED products design technics find this book not very useful.

Great for LED Device info, Short on Process Technology March 15 2006
By Surya - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is a great book for pople interested in the LED device. It is disappointing in people interested in the processing to make the device. I hope Prof. Schubert will add that dimension in his next book on this topic.

Make sure it's the right edition! Aug. 10 2007
By B. Buckner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I just bought one of these through Amazon and it turned out to be the 1st (2003) edition instead of the 2nd (2006). The Amazon ordering system doesn't seem to distinguish between them so make sure you get the right one. There are substantial differences!

Second edition much improved July 10 2007
By R. G. W. Brown - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In its Second Edition - this book is much improved and far more up-to-date, with plenty of practical advice as well theory/design. But still no discussion of band-structure in any detail - which I feel is a weakness of this text. Some valuable material on Nitrides is now included. Overall - this is now arguably the best LED book in the market-place at this time.
