About the Authors
  • This book gives a complete overview of the properties of deep-level, localized defects in semiconductors. Such comparatively long-lived (or metastable) defects exhibit complex interactions with the surrounding material, and can significantly affect the performance and stability of certain semiconductor devices. After an introductory discussion of metastable defects, the authors present properties of DX and EL2 centers in IIISHV compounds. They also deal with additional crystalline materials before giving a detailed description of the properties and kinetics of photo-induced defects in amorphous semiconductors. The book closes with an examination of the effects of photo-induced defects in a range of practical applications. The book will be of great use to graduate students and researchers interested in the physics and materials science of semiconductors.

    • Distinguished authors, both Fellows of the American Physical Society
    • First book to deal with this subject
    • Multidisciplinary subject, of interest to physicists, electrical engineers and materials scientists

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book by Redfield and Bube gives a comprehensive review of the subject. In my opinion, the authors review the most important PI defects in crystalline and amorphous semiconductors, focusing on existing models without mathematical complications and emphasizing the need for more sophisticated many-electron models....invaluable as an introduction for those who are new to the field and for graduate students." J. Abdulhalim, Optics & Photonics News
