Book Description

III-V semiconductors have attracted considerable attention due to their applications in the fabrication of electronic and optoelectronic devices as light-emitting diodes and solar cells. Because of their wide applications in a variety of devices, the search for new semiconductor materials and the improvement of existing materials is an important field of study. This new book covers all known information about phase relations in ternary systems based on III-V semiconductors.

This book will be of interest to undergraduate and graduate students studying materials science, solid state chemistry, and engineering. It will also be relevant for researchers at industrial and national laboratories, in addition to phase diagram researchers, inorganic chemists, and solid state physicists.

Vasyl Tomashyk is executive director and head of department at the V.Ye. Lashkaryov Institute for Semiconductor Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Graduating from Chernivtsi State University in 1972 (master of chemistry), he is a doctor of chemical sciences (1992), professor (1999) and author of about 590 publications in scientific journals and conference proceedings, including eight books (three of which are published by CRC Press) devoted to physical-chemical analysis, chemistry of semiconductors, and chemical treatment of semiconductor surfaces.

Prof. Tomashyk is a specialist at a high international level in the field of solid state and semiconductor chemistry, including physical-chemical analysis and the technology of semiconductor materials. He was head of research topics within the International program "Copernicus". He is a member of the Materials Science International Team (Stuttgart, Germany, since 1999) which prepares a series of prestigious reference-books under the titles of "Ternary alloys" and "Binary alloys" and publishes 35 articles in Landolt–Börnstein New Series. Prof. Tomashyk is actively working with young researchers and graduate students and 20 Ph.D theses have been prepared under his supervision. For many years, he has been a professor at Ivan Franko Zhytomyr State University.


"The book is intended not only to provide an encyclopedia on the phase relations and compounds in ternary systems of III-V semiconductors for graduate-level students as well as for researchers at industrial and national laboratories and universities but may also serve as a comprehensive guide for experts in solid state sciences particularly of electronic materials. The book is introduced by a comprehensive preface declaring its use and content.
The content of the book follows the nomenclature of ternary systems III - X - V, where III = B, Al, Ga, In; V = N, P, As, Sb; and X covers all elements in the periodic table for which corresponding ternary information could be assembled from a total of 1492 relevant references: i.e. 3 chapters on B-X-{N,P,As} and 4 chapters for each of Al, Ga and In, {Al,Ga,In}-X-{N,P,As,Sb}. In these 15 chapters, the book is summarizing, for each of the 577 critically assessed ternary systems based on III-V semiconductors, information (whatever available) on (i) the ternary phase relations (isothermal section, liquidus projection, glass forming regions, isopleths), (ii) the hitherto identified ternary compounds and their synthesis (data on crystal structure, their homogeneity region as f(T,p), on phase transformation/modifications, on thermodynamic quantities), (iii) in some cases for crystal growth also equilibria with vapour and/or liquid, as well as (iv) data/graphs on pressure-temperature-composition. As is inherent to critical assessment work, original graphs were amended, whenever new data of higher quality superseded older values of lower impact. In all cases, where ambiguities could not be resolved by the assessor, all original data/graphs are presented.
In general, the information is presented in a clear manner illustrated by a large number of graphs (505). As the reader is taken step by step through the constitution of ternary systems based on III-V semiconductors, the information
