The Materials Science of Semiconductors (Hardback)Angus Rockett (author)
- We can order this
This book describes semiconductors from a materials science perspective rather than from condensed matter physics or electrical engineering viewpoints. It includes discussion of current approaches to organic materials for electronic devices. It further describes the fundamental aspects of thin film nucleation and growth, and the most common physical and chemical vapor deposition techniques. Examples of the application of the concepts in each chapter to specific problems or situations are included, along with recommended readings and homework problems.

From the reviews:
"This textbook on semiconductors for students at advanced undergraduate or graduate level covers the basis of electronic band structures, engineering of alloys, and the effect of defects. Concentrating on semiconductors materials science rather than devices, Rockett also includes discussion of organic electronic materials, amorphous semiconductors, and methods for growth and deposition. Each chapter includes recommended reading suggestions and problems for study." (Materials Today, Vol. 11 (5), May, 2008)
"The 12 summarized chapters of The Materials Science of Semiconductors by Rockett ... provide excellent coverage for practicing engineers or students interrelating the underlying materials considerations with semiconductor devices. Each chapter contains diagrams, problems, substantial references, and additional readings; the book also includes an appendix and a dozen tables. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (S. M. Pilgrim, Choice, Vol. 46 (2), October, 2008)
