The Si-SiO 2 system has been the subject of concentrated research for over 25 years, particularly because of its key role in silicon integrated circuits. However, only a few comprehensive treatises on this field have been published in recent years. This book focuses on the materials science and technology aspects of the system. Its aim is to give a comprehensive overview of the topic, including an extensive list of references giving easy access to the literature. After an introductory chapter which reviews the Si-SiO 2 system from the perspective of other semiconductor-insulator combinations of technical interest, the technology of oxide preparation is discussed. Fundamental questions regarding the structure and chemistry of the interfacial region are then addressed. Two chapters are concerned with system properties: one deals with the physico-chemical, electrical and device-related characteristics and the way these are affected by the technology of oxide preparation; a second chapter focuses on point defects and charge trapping. The book concludes with a broad review of the techniques available for electrical characterization of the system, including the physical background.
