Hydrogen plays an important role in silicon technology, having a profound effect on a wide range of properties. Thus, the study of hydrogen in semiconductors has received much attention from an interdisciplinary assortment of researchers. This sixteen-chapter volume provides a comprehensive review of the field, including a discussion of hydrogenation methods, the use of hydrogen to passivate defects, the use of hydrogen to neutralize deep levels, shallow acceptors and shallow donors in silicon, vibrational spectroscopy, and hydrogen-induced defects in silicon. In addition to this detailed coverage of hydrogen in silicon, chapters are provided that discuss hydrogen-related phenomena in germanium and the neutralization of defects and dopants in III*b1V semiconductors.
Provides the most in-depth coverage of hydrogen in silicon available in a single sourceIncludes an extensive chapter on the neutralization of defects in III*b1V semiconductorsCombines both experimental and theoretical studies to form a comprehensive reference
