Research and Markets: Compound Semiconductor Photonics: Materials, Devices and Integration
“Compound Semiconductor Photonics: Materials, Devices and Integration”
This proceeding is a collection of selected papers presented in Symposium O of Compound Semiconductor Photonics in the International Conference on Materials for Advanced Technology (ICMAT), which was held in Singapore on 28 June-3 July 2009. Semiconductor photonics is a cross discipline between materials, physics, chemistry, opto and electronic devices. In recent years continued progress in the research and development of new materials and devices has led to a better understanding of fundamental knowledge in electronic structures, carrier dynamics and electron-photon-phonon interactions. These have generated widespread applications in solid state lighting, imaging, display, signal processing, chemical and biological sensing, surveillance, solar cells and wide band-width communications.
The symposium covers a wide range of scope from fundamental semiconductor materials study to photonic device fabrication and application. The papers collected are of recent progress in the active and wide range of semiconductor photonics research. They include materials related papers on III-As/P, III-Nitride, quantum dot/wire/dash growth, ZnO, chalcogenide, and devices related papers on photonic crystals, VCSEL, quantum dot/dash lasers, LEDs, waveguides, solar cells and heterogeneous integration. The authors would like to thank all the authors and the reviewers of this issue for their invaluable contributions.
