Porous semiconductor materials are finding applications in many areas of science and technology. Porous Semiconductors: Optical Properties and Applications provides an examination of these new types of materials, with an emphasis on optical properties and applications. Beginning with a description of the basic electrochemistry of porous semiconductors and the different kinds of porous semiconductor materials that can be fabricated, the book moves on to describe the fabrication processes used in the production of porous semiconductor optical components. This is then followed by a detailed description of peculiar light propagation phenomena. Concluding the text, a number of optical components based on porous semiconductor materials are discussed in depth. Porous Semiconductors: Optical Properties and Applications provides a thorough grounding in the design, fabrication and theory behind the optical applications of porous semiconductor materials for graduate and undergraduate students interested in optics, photonics, MEMS, and material science. The book is also a valuable reference for scientists, researchers, and engineers in the field of optics and materials science, who are looking to increase their understanding of the optical properties and applications of porous semiconductors. The Engineering Materials and Processes series focuses on all forms of materials and the processes used to synthesise and formulate them as they relate to the various engineering disciplines. The series deals with a diverse range of materials: ceramics, metals (ferrous and non-ferrous), semiconductors, composites, polymers, biomimetics, etc. Each monograph in the series is written by a specialist and demonstrates how enhancements in materials and the processes associated with them can improve performance in the field of engineering in which they are used.
