About the book

"The evolution of human society is closely linked to scientific progress in all areas of knowledge, which occurs more efficiently if it is integrated into society as a whole. The greatest mission of science is to produce and disseminate knowledge, informing society as clearly as possible and disconnected from particular and dogmatic interests. This facilitates the promotion of one of the most cherished values of human society, which is a collaboration between peoples and nations. This search for the democratization of access to scientific knowledge finds support in the model of dissemination of information through Open Access publications, especially through the digital format through the Internet. The current accessibility by the most diverse social classes in the most diverse countries is due in large part to scientific development in semiconductors.

Semiconductor research goes much further than the development of electronic devices, because it has a multidisciplinary character, with contributions from basic sciences, such as Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics, as well as from the frontier of knowledge, such as nanotechnology. This multidisciplinarity allows that in addition to important technological advances in electronic devices, such as diodes and transistors, integrated circuits, lasers, solar and photovoltaic cells, sensors, memory devices, among many others, there are also positive impacts for the production of new scientific knowledge.

It is within this context that this book project is inserted, aiming to gather recent and unpublished discoveries, conclusive reviews and other methodological and conceptual approaches on the subject of semiconductors. The idea is to contribute so that authors can disseminate their work both to other groups of researchers in their fields of study around the world, but also to a society in general, showing how semiconductor research positively changes our lives.

The "New Advances in Semiconductors" book will cover the main themes of the area but will be limited to these, such as unpublished experimental data, description of synthesis methods and processing techniques, characterizations of traditional or new semiconductor materials, statistical and mathematical treatments, modeling and other theoretical approaches. Articles with alternative discussions will also be welcome, whether on materials, properties, or applications, or the economic and social implications in the field of semiconductors. Thus, this book project aims to gather articles with technical-scientific information and also with general views on the topic of Semiconductors."

About the editor

Alberto Adriano Cavalheiro

Mato Grosso do Sul State University

Professor Alberto Adriano Cavalheiro has the position of Associate Professor at the State University of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, where he works with teaching and research in the areas of Chemistry and Material Sciences, also integrating the editorial board of Editora UEMS. His academic background includes obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Science from Paulista State University, Brazil, where he also obtained his PhD degree in 2002. In his career as a researcher, Dr. Cavalheiro published several book chapters, dozens of articles in peer-reviewed journals, and hundreds of quick communications at scientific events, largely addressing research in semiconductor materials. He has also made important collaborations with the Institute of Ceramics and Glass of Madrid, Spain, and with the Institute of Technology of Karlsruhe, Germany. Currently, Prof. Cavalheiro is the main coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Advanced Materials of Navirai (LIMAN), based at UEMS, where he develops his research and also guides several students at various levels, such as Scientific Initiation, Master's and Doctorate. He was also nominated for the position of Area Coordinator at UEMS in the largest and most important Teaching Initiation Program in Brazil.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Andrea Tomurad

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
