Physics of Crystal Growth (Collection Alea-saclay free pdf This study introduces the physical principles of how and why crystals grow. The first three chapters recall the fundamental properties of crystal surfaces at equilibrium. The next six chapters describe simple models and basic concepts of crystal growth including diffusion, thermal smoothing of a surface, and applications to semiconductors. Following chapters examine more complex topics such as kinetic roughness, growth instabilities, and elastic effects. A brief closing chapter looks back at the crucial contributions of crystal growth in electronics during this century. The book focuses on growth using molecular beam epitaxy. Throughout, the emphasis is on the role played by modern statistical physics. Informative appendices, interesting exercises and an extensive bibliography reinforce the text.

About Alberto Pimpinelli

Alberto Pimpinelli has been Executive Director of the Rice Quantum Institute at Rice University, Houston, since September 2012, and is full Professor in the Physics Department at the Universite Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand, France (on leave) and Visiting Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. From 2008 to 2012 he was one of the Attaches for Science and Technology of the French Embassy in the US. Trained as a theoretical physicist, Alberto Pimpinelli obtained his PhD from the University of Parma (Italy) with a thesis dealing with statistical physics models of magnetism in insulating systems. His interests shifted towards crystal surfaces and crystal growth when, thanks to fellowships of the Accademia dei Lincei and the European Union, he left Italy for the Centre d'Etudes Nucleaires and then the Laue Langevin Institute in Grenoble (1991-97). In 1997, he was appointed Professor at the Universite Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand, where he taught statistical and solid state physics, as well as introductory courses in nanosciences. In 2004 he was invited to the MRSEC at the University of Maryland, where he was appointed Visiting Professor the following year. He has acted as a reviewer for many institutions and scientific agencies (MNEST, ANR, NSF, EU, EC, and the Romanian government). He has authored or co-authored more than 100 scientific papers and book chapters, and has been invited to talk at many international conferences.
