Annotation -
The development of microelectronics and photonics is directly limited by the technological capabilities of the preparation of special materials, usually of high purity and preparation of highly complex structures and components in discrete or integrated form. Semiconducting materials technology and structures and the possibility of the implementation and use of new physical principles play a vital role. The aim of the subject is to familiarize students with the basic technological procedures for the preparation of important semiconductor materials and structures. Attention is focused on the production of single crystal materials, especially silicon, and substances such AIIIBV as input materials of microelectronic and photonic devices and integrated structures. The principles of other processes such as epitaxial and diffusion of technology, vacuum evaporation and sputtering, chemical methods of thin film deposition and lithographic processes for preparation of circuits with high density of integration are also explained.
