Whither Chromium in Gallium Arsenide?

  • A. M. White


The principal empirical properties of the GaAs:Cr system were established nearly 20 years ago. Despite its great technological importance and much investigative work, progress in understanding has been, until comparatively recently, painfully slow. The reasons for this are examined, setting the scene for consideration of the more exciting developments of the last three or four years.
