Bringing together international experts from 16 countries, Gallium Arsenide and Related Compounds 1992 focuses on device applications for Gallium Arsenide and related compounds. A topic of importance discussed is the first GaAs supercomputer from Fujitsu. The book also explores carbon doping and device applications in laser diodes, light modulators, and amplifiers, emphasizing business opportunity in consumer applications such as personal communications and TV tuners. It includes an account of the use of scanning tunneling microscopies in GaAs and related compounds. This book is ideal for physicists, materials scientists, and electronics and electrical engineers involved in III-V compound research.
Papers include: Present and future of GaAs IC business (M Fukuta); Scanning tunnelling microscopy of GaAs and related compounds (D K Biegelsen); Low dislocation density 6-inch diameter GaAs single crystals grown by the VCZ method (S Fujiwara et al).
