Semiconductors are at the heart of modern living. Almost everything we do, be it work, travel, communication, or entertainment, all depend on some feature of semiconductor technology. COMPREHENSIVE SEMICONDUCTOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY captures the breadth of this important field, and presents it in a single source to the large audience who study, make, and exploit semiconductors. Previous attempts at this achievement have been abbreviated, and have omitted important topics. Written and edited by a truly international team of experts, this work delivers an objective yet cohesive global review of the semiconductor world.
