This well organized reference book covers the newest and most important practically applicable results in thin film-based semiconductor (A2B6-A4B6 and chalcogenide) sensors, heterojunction-based active elements and other devices. This book is written for researchers, material scientists and advanced students who wish to increase their familiarity with different topics of novel semiconductor material science related to production of thin film-based sensors and active elements for micro- and nanoelectronics. It is also a tool and resource for professionals engaged in novel semiconductor materials technologies. Both basic and applied aspects of semiconductor materials science and technology related to A2B6-A4B6 and chalcogenide compounds, in particular, to ZnCdHgTe semiconductor, are presented in this book. The book features the most important original results in studies and practical applications of A2B6-A4B6 and chalcogenide semiconductor compounds for sensory and micro(nano)electronics. Many important original experimental data as well as results of numerical simulations are included.


Semiconductor physics is developing during last decades and now serves as an extremely important field of the material science and novel electronic industry. Regardless of enormous number of publications, the proposed eBook aims to summarize unique results of investigations (both experimental and theoretical) and design of devices based on lead sulfide, cadmium-zincmercury telluride, and chalcogenide semiconductor thin films. Data reported in the book are supposed to be of particular interest for professionals working in the field of semiconductor technologies as well as for high-level undergraduate and postgraduate (also Ph.D.) students.
