Materials, Properties and Preparation

Product description

The availability of various novel materials, such as semiconductors, tailor-made polymers and ceramics, has revolutionized information processing and transmission. Since the early fifties, semiconductors have formed the backbone of different information age technologies. The fabrication of state-of-the-art semiconducting devices requires either substrates or composite structures consisting of thin epitaxial layers. Over the years, great strides have been made both in growing bulk crystals and in controlled deposition of thin homo- and hetero-epitaxial layers. Understanding of the deformation behaviour of semiconductors has facilitated the growth of high-quality crystals. Heterostructures consisting of extremely thin layers and chemically and structurally sharp interfaces can be deposited. To tailor bandgaps and electronic properties, silicon-germanium/silicon heterojunctions, mixed III-V epitaxial layers that are ordered and phase separated and quantum-well structures have been grown.;Also, to improve the optical, electrical and structural quality of as-grown bulk and thin film materials, a variety of interdisciplinary studies have been carried out that has resulted in a number of sophisticated techniques to evaluate semiconductors. In this volume, scientific issues relevant to these topics and others are discussed in detail. The coverage is in-depth and broad. The resulting volume should serve as a major reference source for education and research on semiconducting materials.

After ten years from the first edition of the Handbook, there have been tremendous advances in this very important subject. The Handbook is in four volumes, each with a separate editor. All chapters have been updated and extensively rewritten. In addition, there are many chapters with new titles covering areas of current scientific or technological interest. Vol. 3a: xv + 1230 pages; vol 3b: ix + pp from 1231 to 2388. Index to both volumes on pp. 2357-2388. Bound in red cloth on hard boards, with yellow lettering. No dust jacket. Very clean copy, as new, no marks. Some crease to the upper part of the spine in vl 3b. Minor rubbing to covers. The edge of the pages is slightly dirty at the bottom corner. In very good condition.

Oxfam Bookshop Reading

One of the largest bookshops in the Oxfam network, Reading Books has more than 5000 different titles in the shop at all times. We have unusually large sections in science fiction and fantasy, literature, history, travel, children's, business and the sciences. There is plenty of space for browsing and a couple of chairs for customers who wish to inspect books more closely. We also have a catalogue of about 1000 collectable books that are kept in the backroom, and these can be brought out for customers to view on request.
