Corrosion of Semiconductors

  • Viktor A. Myamlin
  • Yurii V. Pleskov
Chapter

Abstract

In the broad sense, corrosion is the oxidation of a material without the passage of an electric current. In this chapter we examine the corrosion of semiconductor materials in aqueous solutions, * and most attention will be paid to the electrochemical aspects of this process.
