Handbook of Semiconductor Nanostructures and Nanodevices is the World's first multivolume handbook covering a wide variety of advanced and emerging developments in the field of semiconductor nanotechnology. Semiconductor materials are the key elements of continued scientific and technological developments made in the fields of electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, and magnetic devices. The five-volume set is an unprecedented encyclopedic reference that covers growth and processing of semiconductor nanostructured materials by MBE, CVD, PVD, electrochemical, and other techniques, all types of III-V, IV, and II-VI semiconductor nanomaterials, nanofabrication by bottom-up and top-down approaches, precise control and uniformity of semiconductor self-assembled nanostructures, quantum dots, and quantum wells, nanowires, nanoclusters, nanocrystals, and nanoparticles, heterojunctions and interface properties, physical, and chemical properties, nanoscale spectroscopic characterization techniques, and applications of semiconductor devices in nanoelectronics, nano-optoelectronics, nanometrology, nanocircuits, nano-imprint lithography, heterojunction devices, laser diodes, LEDs, solar cells, terahertz devices, thermoelectric devices, NEMS/MEMS, optical switches, infrared detectors,, computers, wireless communications, magnetic random access memory (MRAM) and ferroelectric random access memory (FeRAM), spintronic and data storage devices, single-electron transistors, quantum computing devices, .etc. Both experimental and theoretical aspects of semiconductor nanoscience and nanotechnology are covered. It is a must-have handbook for university libraries, research establishments, government laboratories, and high-tech companies engaged in research and development of semiconductors. It is written for a broad range of audience with different backgrounds and educational level, compiling past two decades of pioneering research. It provides in-depth information to research professionals active in the field of semiconductor nanoscale science and technologies. This handbook can be effectively used by upper-level undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, scientists, engineers working in industry, consultants, technology investors and developers seeking the most up-to-date information on semiconductor nanotechnology. This handbook has been divided into five different thematic volumes based on semiconductor nanostructured materials and their based nanodevices.Volume 1: Self-Assemblies, Qauntum Dots, and NanowiresVolume 2: Nanofabrication and Nanoscale Characterization Volume 3: Spintronics and NanoelectronicsVolume 4: Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics Volume 5: Nanodevices and Circuits.World's first handbook ever published on semiconductor nanostructures and nanodevices Most up-to-date reference work summarizing two decades of pioneering research About 70 in-depth review chapters contributed by more than 200 of the world's leading experts.
