About the book

Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) is a compound semiconductor. It is a mixture of two elements Gallium (Ga) and Arsenic (As). Its forms group 3 to 5 in the periodic table. GaAs consider one of the most important materials in semiconductors.

This book will explain in detail the physical and chemical properties of this material which makes it important. Furthermore, we will explain the importance of GaAs in the electronics industry and its importance for the market value and electronics economy in general. Then, we will explain the usage of GaAs in the optics and photonics fields because it heavily used in LED and LASER fabrication either as substrate or Quantum will layers. Last but not least we will define the GaAs growth technics either by using MBE or MOCVD and how important making GaAs wafer and define the fabrication lines for the material. It will be an important book in the fabrication field especially for the GaAs.

Publishing process

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: September 21st 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: December 10th 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: February 8th 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

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, copy-editing 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.
