In view that its inception in 1966, the sequence of numbered volumes referred to as Semiconductors and Semimetals has exclusive itself during the cautious choice of famous authors, editors, and participants. The Willardson and Beer sequence, because it is celebrated, has succeeded in generating a number of landmark volumes and chapters. not just did a lot of those volumes make an influence on the time in their booklet, yet they remain well-cited years after their unique liberate. lately, Professor Eicke R. Weber of the collage of California at Berkeley joined as a co-editor of the sequence. Professor Weber, a well known professional within the box of semiconductor fabrics, will additional give a contribution to carrying on with the sequence' culture of publishing well timed, hugely suitable, and long-impacting volumes. a few of the contemporary volumes, comparable to Hydrogen in Semiconductors, Imperfections in III/V fabrics, Epitaxial Microstructures, High-Speed Heterostructure units, Oxygen in Silicon, and others promise that this practice could be maintained or even expanded.Reflecting the really interdisciplinary nature of the sector that the sequence covers, the volumes in Semiconductors and Semimetals were and should stay of serious curiosity to physicists, chemists, fabrics scientists, and machine engineers in glossy undefined.
