Scope: Research on SiC is driven by the growing promise of applications in blue light diodes, integrated circuits operating at high temperatures, high power/high frequency devices and quantum structures. To fulfil this promise it is necessary to understand and fully characterise the SiC system. In this book Professor Gary Harris has drawn together the expert knowledge of numerous researchers from around the world and presented it in one highly structured fully indexed volume with over 1000 references to published and unpublished sources.
