  • Modern Photon Detectors1

    To select or design a detector material, one must consider many material properties. The bandgap and absorption length determine whether the material will in fact detect photons. It is convenient to classify candidate materials into one of five groups: single chemical elements, doped elements, chemical compounds, alloys, and engineered materials. For some of the materials this chapter provides the energy gap, the corresponding cutoff wavelength, and the approximate maximum operating temperature. Blocked impurity band (BIB) detectors offer significant advantages over simple extrinsic doped photoconductors for many applications. The lattice‐engineered materials are used along with natural semiconductors to make variants of the classical photoconductive (PC) and photovoltaic (PV) structures, and it is difficult (and probably counterproductive) to distinguish between devices based primarily on these lattice‐engineered materials and the devices built using the “natural” materials.

  • 1 Introduction

    More than fifteen years ago the freelance journalist Russ Arensman wrote a piece for Electronic Business, a now defunct trade magazine, about something called “electronic waste” (Arensman 2000, 110). Largely a profile of Hewlett- Packard's (HP's) then new recycling plant in Roseville, California, the article revealed a geography of electronics recycling in which plastics and cathode ray tubes (CRTs) recovered at the Roseville plant were trucked more than 5,000 kilometers northeast to Noranda Inc.'s smelters in Canada (see figure 1.1 online). At the time, Noranda operated the Horne smelter in the company's hometown of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Noranda no longer exists (it was absorbed in a series of mergers with other mining companies, first Falconbridge and later Xstrata), but at the time it also had controlling interests in operations outside Quebec. One of those operations was the Brunswick Mining and Smelting facility near Belledune, New Brunswick, on the shores of Chaleur Bay. CRT monitors were crushed and processed for their copper and lead at both the Horne and Brunswick smelters. The plastics from those monitors and other electronics processed from HP's Roseville plant were burned for fuel at both sites. The year Arensman's article appeared, the Horne smelter emitted 90,000 metric tons of sulfur dioxide, 620 metric tons of particulates, 80 metric tons of lead, and 2.2 metric tons of cadmium. The influence of cadmium emissions was traced as far as 25 kilometers from the smelter; for lead it was up to 300 kilometers (Bonham-Carter 2005, 10; see also Savard, Bonham-Carter, and Banic 2006, 101, 104). The Brunswick smelter's atmospheric emissions for the same year included 11,938 metric tons of sulfur dioxide, 86.01 metric tons of particulates, 13.89 metric tons of lead, 2.43 metric tons of zinc, 1.36 metric tons of cadmium, and 1.49 metric tons of arsenic (Bonham-Carter 2005, 12; see also Parsons and Cranston 2006, 261). Insofar as the Horne smelter had a total throughput of over 787,000 metric tons of feedstock from all sources in the year 2000 (Savard, Bonham-Carter, and Banic 2006, 101), the contribution of the electronics arriving from HP's Roseville recycling plant would have been minuscule (feedstock data are unavailable for the Brunswick smelter). However, the inputs of recycled electronics arriving from California (and elsewhere) into the smelter operations in Canada highlight how recycling electronics is action that connects people, places, and things. The action generating those connections leaves a wake of discards, such as emissions from long-distance truck transport and smelting. Such is the case with practices of discarding such as recycling. Though one might intuitively think of discarding as a ridding that separates (e.g., a person from her possessions), such practices are also groupings—or attachment sites, as Donna Haraway (2008, 2010) might say. In other words, discarding generates partial and specific connections through action carried out, and that action, though partial and situated, raises fundamental ethical questions—questions about good and right action—which are explored in this book.

  • Large Area Electronics

    Progress made in thin film technology in the last century has underpinned some of the major developments in large area electronics, which encompass devices ranging from displays and imaging arrays to solar cells. The thin-film transistor backplane has become the key component in active matrix flat-panel displays based on liquid crystal technology and organic light emitting diodes, and large area (human size) bio-medical imaging. The technology also forms the basis of thin film solar cells which occupy a significant portion of the energy market. This chapter provides an overview of some of the most important breakthroughs in the field of large area electronics.
