Influence of the Nature of the Chemical Bond on the Physicochemical Properties of Glassy Semiconductors

  • Z. U. Borisova


A discussion is made of the temperature dependences of the electrical conductivity, the microhardness, and the kinetics of chemical etching of glassy semiconductors based on arsenic, selenium, germanium, and other elements. It is shown that the electrical and other physicochemical properties of glassy semiconductors depend on the positions of the components of the semiconductor in the periodic system and the nature of the chemical bonds between the atoms of the semiconductor. The effect of impurities in glassy semiconductors is determined by the nature of the chemical bonds between the components of the glass and the impurities.
