This volume contains written versions of the papers presented at the Third Inter national Conference on Amorphous and Crystalline Silicon Carbide and Other Group IV-IV Materials (lCACSC 90), which was held at Howard University, April 11-13, 1990 in Washington, DC. The ICACSC continued to provide an international forum for discussion and exchange of ideas regarding the current state of research aimed at developing silicon carbide devices and circuits and related materials. ICACSC attracted over one hundred participants from seven countries. A special session was held in honor of the eight Soviet scientists who attended the conference. The substantial increase in the number of papers compared with the previous year is an indication of the growing interest in this field. The conference also included a poster session for the first time. This volume contains 54 refereed contributions grouped into four parts. Several exciting new results are reported for the first time here: SiC-based solid-solution growth and technology, the formation of SiGe heterostructures by ion implantation, 6H-SiC substrates grown by the sublimation method, expla nation of the appearance of negative differential resistance in a N+PN-SiC-6H transistor by the Wannier-Starck effect, the formation of amorphous SiC/Si het erojunctions by the polymer route, and the prospects of developing SiC bipolar transistors and thyristors.

Silicon carbide and other group IV-IV materials in their amorphous, microcrystalline, and crystalline forms have a wide variety of applications.The contributions to this volume report recent developments and trends in the field. The purpose is to make available the current state of understanding of the materials and their potential applications. Eachcontribution focuses on a particular topic, such as preparation methods, characterization, and models explaining experimental findings. The volume also contains the latest results in the exciting field of SiGe/Si heterojunction bipolar transistors. The reader will find this book valuable as a reference source, an up-to-date and in-depth overview of this field, and, most importantly, as a window into the immense range of reading potential applications of silicon carbide. It is essential for scientists, engineers and students interested in electronic materials, high-speed heterojunction devices, and high-temperature optoelectronics.
