Abstract

Improved technologies for growing semiconductor thin films of different structural and electronic properties, and even with layer thickness approaching atomic dimensions, have provided new opportunities for basic scientific studies and device applications. New fabrication technologies have also made it possible to reduce device dimensions to the point where quantum size effects must be considered in order to realistically describe the device operation and reliably predict their performance for electronic and optical applications. In this chapter, we shall present a partial summary of advances in low-dimensional semiconductor materials and their device applications.
