About the book

More than half a century has elapsed since the first solid-state transistor was invented by Brattain, Shockley, and Bardeen in December 1947. In comparison to its predecessor (i.e., the vacuum tubes), the solid-state transistor is diminutive in size, consumes much lower power, operates at relatively lower temperature, and exhibits significantly faster response time. As a result of its advantages and viability, the solid-state transistor swiftly replaced the vacuum tubes. The widespread application of the solid-state transistors in electronic circuits has triggered a dramatic revolution in the electronic industries, kicking off the era of semiconductor microchips. Today, microchips are now interwoven with human's life and the fundamental building blocks of the microchips are made from field-effect transistors of FETs. Considering the impact that it has imposed on mankind, this book intends to compile a list of interesting topics which are related to the latest technological advancement and scientific breakthroughs of field-effect transistors.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Tikel

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.
