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
