Description: The 5th International Workshop on Beam Injection Assessment of Defects in Semiconductors (BIADS 98) focussed on many theoretical and experimental aspects of this topic. The aim was to bring together specialists working in the fields of both fundamental research and applications. There were more than 80 participants from 15 countries all over the world.

Description: Condensed matter physics is an important field, not only for physicists, but also for other scientists and engineers. It encompasses all types of solid and liquid materials. Solid-state phenomena in metals, semiconductors, dielectrics, magnetic and optical materials in all their forms (crystalline, amorphous, nanocrystalline, polymer, liquid) are being intensely investigated. This is being done both for fundamental reasons, and because of the numerous actual and possible practical applications. Therefore, condensed matter physics is also the keystone of electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering, technology, and the development of its methods thus has a direct influence upon applied sciences.

Description: Dislocations were introduced into crystal physics, and particularly into the theory of plasticity, in 1934. For many years, they were the field of speculation of a small group of specialists, not considered seriously by real physicists and metallurgists. After W.T. Read Jr's fundamental work in 1953 and further developments by Cottrel, Friedel, Frank and Hirsch, dislocations had become part of the working vocabulary of solid-state physics and metallurgy.

Description: Defect control relies more and more upon advanced fabrication approaches such as the use of slow pulling rates and hydrogen annealing. Gettering techniques remain of key importance in enhancing the device yield.

Description: Many important properties of materials are governed by the microstructures which have evolved during their prior treatment. Therefore, the characterisation of structures and the understanding of structural changes has always been a central problem in any discipline which deals with materials.

Description: The subject area of electronic devices has undergone a rapid expansion in recent years. New developments are continually accurring all over the world. Progress in the field of electronic devices is, however, dependent upon the production and characterization of device grade material. The science and technology of electronic materials has attracted somewhat less attention, as compared with device development.

Description: This volume presents the most recent results concerning the various approaches to obtaining light emission from silicon.

This dream of silicon technologists is inspired by the fact that an efficient and stable silicon light emitting device would open the way to the production of monolithic optoelectronic integrated circuits, that were based entirely upon silicon. In fact, some of the main building blocks of optoelectronic devices, such as waveguides and photodetectors have already been developed by using silicon technology. The above possibility would sharply reduce the price of optoelectronic circuits as compared with hybrid ones.

Description: This book presents the central ideas in the nanoscopic electron-affected stochastic dynamics of atomic diffusion in solids. Great care has been taken to develop the basic concepts, as well as to make the reader familiar with the application of the theory to various materials and experimental situations.
