Defects in Amorphous Semiconductors

  • E. A. Davis
Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)

Abstract

The concept of point defects in noncrystalline solids is not an easy one to grasp for anyone unfamiliar with the subject. One’s first impression might be that the structure of a glass or an amorphous thin film is totally defective!
