Abstract : This volume results from a symposium held at the 1995 MRS Spring Meeting, April 17-21, in San Francisco. The symposium, bearing the title of this volume, followed upon a highly successful earlier symposium entitled 'Defect Engineering in Semiconductor Growth. Processing and Device Technology,' held at the 1992 MRS Spring Meeting. The intent of the present symposium was to go beyond defect control and explore deliberate introduction and manipulation of defects and impurities in order to engineer some desired properties in semiconductor materials and devices. The response from the academic and industrial research communities was overwhelming, with over 280 abstracts submitted from around the world. The theme of defect engineering has clearly come of age. p2
