Description

This book covers a broad spectrum of the silicon-based materials and their device applications. This book provides a broad coverage of the silicon-based materials including different kinds of silicon-related materials, their processing, spectroscopic characterization, physical properties, and device applications. This two-volume set offers a selection of timely topics on silicon materials namely those that have been extensively used for applications in electronic and photonic technologies. The extensive reference provides broad coverage of silicon-based materials, including different types of silicon-related materials, their processing, spectroscopic characterization, physical properties, and device applications. Fourteen chapters review the state of the art research on silicon-based materials and their applications to devices. This reference contains a subset of articles published in AP's recently released Handbook of Advanced Electronic and Photonic Materials and Devices ( 2000, ISBN 012-5137451, ten volumes) by Dr. Hari Nalwa. This two-volume work strives to present a highly coherent coverage of silicon-based material uses in the vastly dynamic arena of silicon chip research and technology.
