Single Crystals of Electronic Materials: Growth and Properties is a complete overview of the state-of-the-art growth of bulk semiconductors. It is not only a valuable update on the body of information on crystal growth of well-established electronic materials, such as silicon, III-V, II-VI and IV-VI semiconductors, but also includes chapters on novel semiconductors, such as wide bandgap oxides like ZnO, Ga2, O3, In2, O3, Al2, O3, nitrides (AIN and GaN), and diamond. Each chapter focuses on a specific material, providing a comprehensive overview that includes applications and requirements, thermodynamic properties, schematics of growth methods, and more.

Key Features

  • Presents the latest research and most comprehensive overview of both standard and novel semiconductors
  • Provides a systematic examination of important electronic materials, including their applications, growth methods, properties, technologies and defect and doping issues
  • Takes a close look at emerging materials, including wide bandgap oxides, nitrides and diamond


Material scientists and researchers, academic and industry crystal growth experts, academic and industry semiconductor device experts, and physicists

About the Editor

Roberto Fornari

Roberto Fornari

From 1981 to 2003, Roberto Fornari was at the Institute for Electronic and Magnetic Materials of the Italian National Research Council, and from 2003 to 2013 he was Director of the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ) and Full Professor at the Institute of Physics of the Humboldt University, Berlin. His research experience includes bulk and epitaxial semiconductors for advanced applications (GaAs, InP, GaN, AlN and InGaN), semiconducting oxides, solar silicon, silicon nano-structures. His current research focuses on gallium oxide and related alloys for power electronics and UV-detection.
