The book provides an overview of the fascinating spectrum of semiconductor physics, devices and applications, presented from a historical perspective. It covers the development of the subject from its inception in the early nineteenth century to the recent millennium. Written in a lively, informal style, it emphasizes the interaction between pure scientific push and commercial pull, on the one hand, and between basic physics, materials, and devices, on the other. It also sets the various device developments in the context of systems requirements and explains how such developments met wide ranging consumer demands. It is written so as to appeal to students at all levels in physics, electrical engineering, and materials science, to teachers, lecturers, and professionals working in the field, as well as to a non-specialist scientific readership.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Orton has provided a valuable contribution for those of us studying semiconductor science, technology and industry by packing within a single volume most of what we need to know about its technical content. And he has accomplished this worthwhile task with considerable aplomb, without bogging down less-adept readers in needless jargon. * Physics World *
Orton has been a major contributor to compound semiconductor growth and devices therefore bringing a unique perspective to the task of presenting semiconductor physics from both a fundamental and technology viewpoint[...] I recommend the book unreservedly to all electronic materials students and researchers as an invaluable reference guide to the science and history behind the materials that dominate our lives. * Books & Media update *
