This is the standard reference work on semiconductors used by scientists and researchers as well as engineers in the industry. While silicon is the backbone of the worldwide semiconductor industry, it is an indirect gap material, which seriously hampers its use for light emitting or even lasing devices. This work discusses current ideas to overcome this problem by forming group IV quantum structures like Si/Ge superlattices, quantum wires and quantum dots, or nanocrystals.
