Overview

This book, first published in 2001, provides an international forum to exchange research results on topics ranging from silicon thin-film physics and chemistry, to novel device design and engineering. It covers all aspects of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) science and technology, and is the fourth consecutive volume in the series to cover heterogeneous silicon film materials, including the nanocrystalline, microcrystalline, and polycrystalline films. A special 'Millennium Session' celebrating the most important achievements of the last three decades in the field of amorphous and microcrystalline silicon thins films, is featured. Topics include: amorphous film growth and properties; nanocrystalline/microcrystalline film growth and properties; ordering, ordering transitions and photocrystalline films: polycrystalline films, epitaxial growth and properties; catalytic/hot-wire CVD - amorphous to polycrystalline films; implantation, annealing and crystallization; structure and hydrogen; band, band tails and defect states; metastability and equilibration; thin-film transistors, displays and imagers; thin-film solar cells and solar-cell structures; amorphous silicon detectors and other devices; and heterogeneous silicon transport and device applications.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains papers from an April 2000 symposium on the growth of amorphous and heterogeneous films, their ordering transitions, and the creation and annealing of deleterious metastable defects, as well as applications ranging from traditional large-area display and photovoltaic devices to novel micro-scale photodiodes for retinal stimulation and nano-scale crystallite devices for memories. Papers are in 14 sections on areas such as amorphous film growth and properties, polycrystalline films and epitaxial growth, catalytic/hot wire CVD, implantation and annealing, structure and hydrogen, defect states, and heterogeneous silicon transport and device applications. Collins is affiliated with The Pennsylvania State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
