ISBN: 978-3-527-61306-9 December 2007 409 Pages


Semiconductor electrochemistry deals with many aspects, ranging from fundamental semiconductor physics to complex effects, such as charge transfer processes at semiconductor-liquid surfaces or photoreactions at semiconductor particles. Its applications cover important fields of present and future technology including solar energy conversion or semiconductor device technology, micromachining, and nanotechnology.

Providing both an introduction and an up-to-date survey to the whole field, this text captivates by its clear style and inspiring, yet solid presentation. Rüdger Memming, an acknowledged expert, primarily addresses physical chemists
and electrochemists, but materials scientists, physicists, and engineers dealing with semiconductor technology and its applications will also benefit greatly from this text.

"However the book is well edited on the whole. It is excellent printed, its contents are well balanced, and the choice of references is very good. The book well reflects state-of-the-art of the electrochemistry of semiconducors."
