Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


This chapter covers the advances on semiconductor devices that manipulate light, convert photons to electrons, and their applications. Some devices are designed for generation of light. The materials used in all these devices have steered the applications from communications, to medical instrumentation, scanners, and consumer electronics in a way thatsemiconductor optoelectronics became ubiquitous.
