Heteroepitaxy of Semiconductors Theory, Growth, and Characterization by siebo — last modified September 15, 2009 - 06:17
Considered one of the top research fields in electronics materials today, heteroepitaxy of semiconductors refers to the single-crystal growth of one semiconductor on a different substrate. The application of heteroepitaxy has enabled the development of laser diodes, CD and DVD drives, fiber optic communication systems, high-frequency transistors, wireless communications systems, and high-brightness LEDs for lighting, automotive, and display applications. Heteroepitaxy is now becoming an important technology for digital very-large scale integrated circuits (VLSICs) with the advent of SiGe electronics. This book covers the theory, growth, and characterization of heteroepitaxial cubic and hexagonal semiconductors. It includes practical examples as well as end-of-chapter problems, serving as an ideal reference for professionals and a practical textbook for graduate students.
Nanotechnology: Understanding Small Systems by siebo — last modified September 15, 2009 - 11:44
<p>Although nanotechnology is a hot topic, the search for a true introductory textbook usually comes up cold. Students in a first course on nanotechnology come from a wide variety of backgrounds, so the text must not assume understanding of too much background material, nor be too focused on any particular area. And still, those students are capable of understanding the hard details of the science, so the text must not gloss over the rigorous scientific explanations. <b>Nanotechnology: Understanding Small Systems</b> fits perfectly between popular science books and high-level treatises, neither of which suit the needs of students approaching this field for the first time. <p>Working from the ground up, this text provides a detailed yet accessible introduction to the world's fastest growing field. Through real-world examples, hundreds of homework problems, original illustrations, and a clear approach, the authors accomplish the delicate task of keeping the book engaging while not avoiding real explanations of complex concepts. They take a systems-based approach, demonstrating how an understanding of the various areas underlying nanotechnology come together to create systems with unique functions and characteristics. In every case, comparing nanoscale systems to macroscale systems reveals the complex and fundamental differences between phenomena at different scales and uncovers the specific challenges posed by nanotechnology. <p>With comprehensive coverage conveyed in an engaging and entertaining style, <b>Nanotechnology: Understanding Small Systems</b> provides a gateway into the exciting and rapidly evolving area of nanotechnology.</p>
