Description

Although amorphous semiconductors have been studied for over four decades, many of their properties are not fully understood. This book discusses not only the most common spectroscopic techniques but also describes their advantages and disadvantages.

Key Features

  • Provides information on the most used spectroscopic techniques
  • Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each technique

Readership

Researchers and postgraduate students in materials science and solid state physics.
