Applied Solid State Science: Advances in Materials and Device Research, Volume 5 covers articles on devices made with Si, GaAs, and CdS and on the photoconductive insulators of the xerographic process. The book discusses design ideas and fabrication techniques that have raised the efficiency of microwave generators; as well as xerography and photoinduced discharge characteristics of photoconductive insulators. The text then describes a great variety of devices, both unipolar and dipolar, which make use of the advantages of ion implantation for introducing impurities into silicon in a most controllable manner. The progress made toward the goal of providing a low cost solar energy conversion device for terrestrial applications is also considered. The book further tackles high efficiency impatt diodes; the physics of xerographic photoreceptors; ion implantation in silicon; and cadmium sulfide solar cells. Solid state physicists, materials scientists, electrical engineers, and graduate students studying the subjects being discussed will find the book invaluable.
