Photo-Induced Metastability in Amorphous Semiconductors (3527608664) cover image
A review summarising the current state of research in the field, bridging the gaps in the existing literature. All the chapters are written by world leaders in research and development and guide readers through the details of photo-induced metastability and the results of the latest experiments and simulations not found in standard monographs on this topic. A useful reference not only for graduates but also for scientific and industrial researchers.

With a foreword of Kazunobu Tanaka.

"The impressive array of subjects covered in the present compendium, all with an introductory positioning of the subject in the wider ensemble of photoinduced phenomena, makes the book an excelllent entry point for new students who enter the field as well as an invaluable reference tool to all scientists who already are actively involved in this area of research. Detailed tables of contents of the 23 chapters and a good subject index allow convenient use of the book in this way. Maybe some of the readers, after surveying the diverse collection of optically generated effects that are still without quantifiable model for the generating mechanism, will discover here some elements to improve their own models."
