Prof. Sukumar Basu, Ph.D. in Solid State Chemistry in 1973 from IIT Kharagpur, India, earned post doctoral research experience in the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, University of Vienna, Austria (1972-1974) and in Max Planck Institute for Carbon Research, Muelheim/Ruhr, Germany (1975-1978). In 1979 he joined IIT Kharagpur as a faculty member of Materials Science Center. He spent one year (1995-96) in the State University of Milan as an ICTP senior research fellow. He also spent 3 months (2000) in the Institute of Atom Research, Science City, Tsukuba, Japan as JSPS fellow. He was the foreign expert of the evaluation committee of the Singapore-MIT research alliance of the National University of Singapore (NUS). He also served as the member of the expert committee of the National Program on Smart Materials (NPSM) and the project evaluation committee of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India. Prof. Basu was the joint investigator of an India-Sweden Research Program funded by Swedish Research Council (SRC) during 2008-2010 and he visited Linkoping University, Sweden. He was a joint investigator of an India-Brazil-South Africa (IBSA) collaborative Research Program involving IIT Kharagpur, India, Sao Paolo University, Brazil and Cape Town University, S. Africa for the period 2011 and 2014. At present he is Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Physics & Materials Science, Jaypee University of Information Technology, India.

The exciting world of crystalline silicon is the source of the spectacular advancement of discrete electronic devices and solar cells. The exploitation of ever changing properties of crystalline silicon with dimensional transformation may indicate more innovative silicon based technologies in near future. For example, the discovery of nanocrystalline silicon has largely overcome the obstacles of using silicon as optoelectronic material. The further research and development is necessary to find out the treasures hidden within this material. The book presents different forms of silicon material, their preparation and properties. The modern techniques to study the surface and interface defect states, dislocations, and so on, in different crystalline forms have been highlighted in this book. This book presents basic and applied aspects of different crystalline forms of silicon in wide range of information from materials to devices.
