Rosalinda Inguanta is currently an assistant professor of Applied Physical Chemistry at the University of Palermo. She received her PhD degree in 2008 at the University of Palermo. Her research interests include the synthesis of nanostructured electrochemical devices for electrochemical sensors, batteries, solar cells, and electrolysers and the synthesis of biocoatings to prevent the corrosion of medical devices in human body and the recovery of precious metals from electronic waste. She has developed a new method for the synthesis of nanostructures and thin film of different materials based on galvanic synthesis. In the field of semiconductors, she has studied the electrochemical deposition of different semiconductors, such as CIGS and CZTS; currently, her research team is employed on the study of perovskite thin film starting from electrodeposition of PbO2 layers.

Semiconducting materials are widely used in several applications such as photonics, photovoltaics, electronics, and thermoelectrics, because of their optical and electro-optical features. The fundamental and technological importance of these materials is due to the unique physical and chemical properties. Over the years, numerous methods have been developed for the synthesis of high-efficient semiconductors. Moreover, a variety of approach and characterization methods have been used to study the numerous and fascinating properties of the semiconducting materials. This book collects new developments about semiconductors, from the fundamental issues to their synthesis and applications. Special attention has been devoted to electrochemical growth and characterization.
