Recent years have witnessed dramatic success in the development of semiconductor materials and related quantum structures for applications in electronics and optoelectronics. Progress has also been made in manufacturable (low cost, high volume) growth and processing of semiconductor materials for such device structures. Novel approaches have been proposed to integrate compound semiconductor devices with conventional silicon processing. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the progress on growth, properties and processing of semiconductor materials and quantum structures, as well to underscore the progress on devices such as transistors, light sources, detectors and modulators. Brought to maturity, these devices will likely see widespread application in infrared imaging, chemical and biological sensing, surveillance, short links, space-based applications, solar cells, high-bandwidth communications, and more. Topics include: electronic devices; Si/Ge devices and technology; zinc oxide and related compounds; emitters, lasers and photovoltaics; nanostructures; innovative materials and devices; detectors; and III-nitride materials and devices.
