Understanding the formation and introduction mechanisms of defects in semiconductors is essential to understanding their properties. Although many defect-related problems have been identified and solved over the past 60 years of semiconductor research, the quest for faster, cheaper, lower power, and new kinds of electronics generates an ongoing need for new materials and properties, and so creates new defect-related challenges.

This book provides an up-to-date review of the experimental and theoretical methods used for studying defects in semiconductors, focussing on the most recent developments in the methods. These developments largely stem from the requirements of new materials – such as nitrides, the plethora of oxide semiconductors, and 2-D semiconductors - whose physical characteristics and manufacturing challenges are much more complex than in conventional Si/Ge or GaAs. Each chapter addresses both the identification and quantification of the defects and their characteristics, and goes on to suggest routes for controlling the defects and hence the semiconductor properties. The book provides valuable information and solutions for scientists and engineers working with semiconductors and their applications in electronics.

Electrical steels are critical components of magnetic cores used in applications ranging from large rotating machines, including energy generating equipment, and transformers to small instrument transformers and harmonic filters. This comprehensive handbook provides full coverage of the state-of-the-art in electrical steels.

The transfer of responsibility for decisions and actions from humans to machines presents difficult problems for all those concerned with new concepts, their development and use. This book gives practical help by discussing the issues in the context of product design, and gives a methodology to solve them. The design cycle for autonomous systems is described, set in the context of human decisionmaking and the evolving ethical and legal environment. These are explained in separate chapters that will be invaluable to engineers and all the professions associated with autonomous systems. Systems engineering methods, used for weapon systems, are described. These are developed for both military and civil applications. A detailed worked example demonstrates the legal limits imposed on Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems (LAWS) by current international law.
