With an in-depth exploration of the following topics, this book covers the broad uses of zinc oxide within the fields of materials science and engineering:

  • Recent advances in bulk , thin film and nanowire growth of ZnO (including MBE, MOCVD and PLD),
  • The characterization of the resulting material (including the related ternary systems ZgMgO and ZnCdO),
  • Improvements in device processing modules (including ion implantation for doping and isolation ,Ohmic and Schottky contacts , wet and dry etching),
  • The role of impurities and defects on materials properties
  • Applications of ZnO in UV light emitters/detectors, gas, biological and chemical-sensing, transparent electronics, spintronics and thin film


Materials scientists, physicists and electrical engineers. Reasearchers studying the applications of Zinc Oxide in thin films, nanotechnology, etc.
