About the book

In less than 50 years, transistors have undergone a significant reduction in their sizes. Forty years ago in the 1970s, the size of a transistor was slightly smaller than 10 micron; today, the size of which has shrunk to less than 10 nanometers. This is to say that, more than a billion transistors can be incorporated into a single chip nowadays. This allows an integrated circuits chip to support an unprecedented dynamic number of features. This book intends to give an extensive coverage on topics related to integrated circuits chips. It welcomes topics as (but not limited to): The Physics of a Transistor, The Material Science of a Semiconductor, The Operational Concept of a Chip, The Design Process of a Chip, The Fabrication Process of a Chip, Various IC Packaging Technology, and The Latest Technological Advancements in the Development of a Chip.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

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.
