Pizzini discusses the properties of defects in semiconductors of the fourth group using a physico-chemical approach in order to determine whether the full understanding of their chemical nature would account for several problems encountered in practice, or would suggest further experimental or theoretical efforts. He begins by introducing the physical properties of group IV semiconductors and the chemistry and thermodynamics of group IV elements and carbides. Then he examines defects in group IV semiconductors, self-diffusion experiments and their theoretical modeling as practical tools to deduce the nature and presence of native defects in group IV semiconductors, and defects in group IV carbides.
