Though zinc oxide (ZnO) has been used for many purposes in many fields since ancient times, it was not until the 1950s that scientists noticed its semiconductor, piezoelectric, luminescent, ultraviolet absorptive and other properties of interest in electronics. Scientists from the US, Germany, and Japan describe some of these characteristics and some of the uses they have been and could be put to. They cover fundamental properties, optical properties, electrical transport properties, surface properties and Schottky contacts, native point defects and doping, the spectral identification of impurities and native defects, the vapor transport growth of ZnO substrates and the homo-epitaxy of device layers, growth mechanisms and properties of hydrothermal ZnO, the growth and characteristics of gallium nitride/zinc oxide hetero-epitaxy and ZnO-based hybrid devices, room temperature stimulated emission and ZnO lasers, ZnO-based ultraviolet detectors, and room temperature stimulated emission from ZnO multiple quantum wells grown on lattice-matched substrates.
