 
MOSFETs
MOSFETs are the device most commonly produced by humans. Hundreds of millions of MOSFETs are used in a computer.
Reading: Sze chapter 6 or Singh chapter 9 and 10 or Thuselt 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6, and 6.8
For the exam:
 Be able to describe a MOS capacitor in terms of the flatband voltage, threshold voltage, acuumulation, depletion, and inversion.
 Draw the charge density, electric field, and electrostatic potential as a function of position in a MOS capacitor.
 Be able to draw the band diagrams for a nMOS capacitor or a pMOS capacitor.
 Know how the equation for the drain current in the linear regime is derived.
 Be able to explain 'pinchoff' and what controls the drain current in the saturation regime. Know the equation for the drain current in the saturation regime.
 Know why the simple model for MOSFETs is inadequate to describe very small MOSFETs.
 Be able to draw the electric field as a function of position along a cross section from the gate, through the oxide and into the substrate for various body voltages.
