This monograph arose out of the recognition of the importance of hydrogen in modern semiconductor technology. Hydrogen is a component of most chemicals used in the fabrication of electronic and photonic devices, is easily incorporated into semiconductors and it is a model impurity for studying defect reactions in solids. While writing this volume we have received a good deal of encourage- ment from our colleagues at AT&T Bell Laboratories, State University of New York at Albany and Lehigh University, and from collaborators at other institutions: to them we extend our sincere appreciation. In particular we would like to thank W. e. Dautremont-Smith, J. Lopata, V. Swamina- than, K. Bergman, L. e. Synder, P. Deak, J. T. Borenstein, T. S. Shi, D. Tul- chinsky, G. G. DeLeo, W. B. Fowler, G. D. Watkins and D. Kozuch for their crucial contributions to this work. We would also like to thank Mrs. Danuta Sowinska-Kahn for her unfailing expertise in preparing much of the art- work. Finally we owe a great debt to Helmut Lotsch of Springer-Verlag for his initial suggestion to write this book and then his patient and professional guidance in seeing the project to fruition.
