The field of charge conduction in disordered materials is a rapidly evolving area owing to current and potential applications of these materials in various electronic devices This text aims to cover conduction in disordered solids from fundamental physical principles and theories, through practical material development with an emphasis on applications in all areas of electronic materials. * International group of contributors * Presents basic physical concepts developed in this field in recent years in a uniform manner * Brings up-to-date, in a one-stop source, a key evolving area in the field of electronic materials
Sergei Baranovski is based in the Department of Physics at the Phillips University of Marburg in Germany. His research in semiconductors began in the research group of Shklovskii and Efros (see competitive titles). He has given numerous lectures at international meetings, particularly in the series of ICAMS conferences (Intl. Conf. On Amorphous and Microcrystalline Semiconductors). His main focus of research is in organic disordered materials, including work on charge transport in biological systems.
