Semiconductors are at the heart of modern living. Almost everything we do, be it work, travel, communication, or entertainment, all depend on some feature of semiconductor technology. Comprehensive Semiconductor Science and Technology, Second Edition, Three Volume Set captures the breadth of this important field and presents it in a single source to the large audience who study, make, and use semiconductor devices. Written and edited by a truly international team of experts and newly updated to capture key advancements in the field, this work delivers an objective yet cohesive review of the semiconductor world.The work is divided into three sections, fully updated and expanded from the first edition. The first section is concerned with the fundamental physics of semiconductors, showing how the electronic features and the lattice dynamics change drastically when systems vary from bulk to a low-dimensional structure and further to a nanometer size. Throughout this section there is an emphasis on the full understanding of the underlying physics, especially quantum phenomena. The second section deals largely with the transformation of the conceptual framework of solid-state physics into devices and systems, which require the growth of high-purity or doped, bulk and epitaxial materials with low defect density and well-controlled electrical and optical properties. The third section is devoted to design, fabrication and assessment of discrete and integrated semiconductor devices. It will cover the entire spectrum of devices we see all around us, for telecommunications, computing, automation, displays, illumination and consumer electronics.
