Solid State Good Solid State Physics book for Undergrads

    I need a book that explains the physics of pn-junction diodes. Really any reference that can help me characterize or model a diode slightly better than the ideal case.

    Definitely "The Oxford Solid State Basics", by Steven H. Simon.
    Amazing book, explains it all very well and, best of all, the author has free lectures online where he goes over the book :
    Definitely recommend it, had a great time learning from it.
