The details of amorphous silica are summarized by M. Tomozawa, whereas the structures and properties of amorphous silicon dioxide, which are related to the issues of reliability and novel applications, are discussed by H. Nishikawa. F. Giorgis and C. F. Pirri describe the growth, characterization, and physical properties of noncrystalline and nano-structured silicon-based alloys. Silicon carbide is very useful for tribological and structural applications because of its hardness, wide-temperature-range operation, and corrosion resistance. The structural, optical, and electrical properties of amorphous silicon carbide films are discussed by W. K. Choi, and in "Silicon Carbon Nitrides: A New Wideband Gap Material," L. C. Chen and coworkers focus on silicon carbide-related materials. M. Masi, C. Cavallotti, and S. Carra discuss the gas phase and surface kinetics of silicon chemical vapor deposition from silane and chlorosilane.
Three chapters focus on processing and physical properties of silicon; they include "Photonic and Magnetic Properties of Spark-Processed Silicon" by R. E. Hummel; "Wet-Chemical Conditioning of Silicon: Electronic Properties Correlated with the Surface Morphology" by H. Angermann, W. Henrion, and A. R¨ oseler; and "Optical Absorption, Lumines-cence, and ESR Spectral Properties of Point Defects in Silica" by M. Leone, S. Agnello, R. Boscaino, M. Cannas, and F. M. Gelardi. The effect of pressure, temperature, and wavelength of the incident light on the refractive index of silica glasses is extensively discussed by C. Z. Tan and J. Arndt.
Besides many other applications, silicon is a key component of today's integrated circuit technology. For example, silicon dioxide has been used extensively as an interlayer dielectric material for microelectronic packaging devices, light-emitting diodes, transistors, optical fiber, endoscopy, and so forth. Four chapters focus on the applications of silicon and its related materials in electronic and photonic devices: "Porous Silicon Microcavities" by C. Vinegoni, M. Cazzanelli, and L. Pavesi; "Polycrystalline Silicon-based Thin Film Transistors for Integrated Active-Matrix Liquid-Crystal Displays" by C. A. Dimitriadis; "Light Emission in Silicon" by D. J. Lockwood; and "Erbium in Silicon and Silicon-Germanium" by A. R. Peaker and J. H. Evans-Freeman.
This book covers a broad spectrum of the silicon-based materials and their device applications. Many industries around the world are engaged in silicon-based technology for the new millennium. The applications of silicon and silicon-based materials in present microelectronics and communication technology have been extensively discussed. This reference should be a valuable resource to scientists, graduate and upper level graduate students working in solid state physics, materials science, chemistry, electrical and electronic engineering, optical engineering, microelectronics, data storage, information technology, and semiconductor industries.
