Semiconductor Physics: Plasma, Thermal, Elastic, and Acoustic Phenomena
Semiconductor physics represents one of the most dynamic areas of materials science and solid-state physics. Plasma, thermal, elastic, and acoustic phenomena in semiconductor micro- and nanostructures and devices are an important challenge for modern semiconductor physics and technologies.
This special topic aims to indicate contemporary directions and perspectives in the research of new semiconductor materials, structures, and devices, as well as the development of characterization methods (carrierography, thermography, photothermal deflection, photothermal radiometry, etc.) based on plasma, thermal, elastic, and acoustic effects.
This research finds application in various fields, including microelectronics, optoelectronics, solar cells, medical instrumentation, quantum computing, and others.
