This book offers an up-to-date treatment of chalcogenide glasses and amorphous semiconductors from basic principles to applications while providing the reader with the necessary theoretical background to understanding the material properties. Chalcogenides form a special class of materials, which have one or more of the elements from the chalcogen group, Group VI in the Periodic Table (S, Se. or Te) as a constituent; the chalcogen is mixed with other elements to form various "new" compounds and alloys. Chalcogenides are noncrystalline solids because their structure is "amorphous" or "glassy". Such structures have totally different properties than crystalline solids. Chalcogenide glasses have a number of very interesting and useful properties, which have been already exploited in the commercialization of new devices.

Chalcogenides are ubiquitous in academia and industry. We focus on chalcogenides for phase-change memory and topological insulators. Phase change memory (PCM) utilizes the resistivity contrast between the crystalline and amorphous phases of certain chalcogenides to store information. Industry is making progress in PCM, which could someday compete with flash memory due to its superior scalability, fast switching and high endurance. In contrast, the field of topological insulators is very young. Topological insulators, bulk insulators with conductive surface states, have attracted great attention since their discovery five years ago. They have exotic properties and are exciting for both fundamental studies and potential applications. Our studies of chalcogenide nanomaterials for PCM and topological insulators provided new insights into these fascinating materials. We developed a method to switch PCM cells inside a transmission electron microscope (TEM), allowing direct correlation of electrical behavior with structural changes. Using this technique, we found that the electrical behavior of Ge2Sb2Te3 lateral phase-change cells depends strongly on the highly variable microstructure of the amorphous domain. In search of new PCM materials, we developed the VLS synthesis of GeTe and Sb2Te3 phase-change nanowires. In situ TEM observation of these nanowires revealed a new switching mechanism via the opening and closing of voids. We also synthesized single-crystalline topological insulator nanoribbons, whose large surface to bulk conduction ratio increases the relative contribution of the surface states. We successfully measured Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in the nanoribbons, thereby observing one of the first electrical signatures of the topological states in this material system.

This book on pressure-induced phase transitions in AB2X4 chalcogenide compounds deals with one important AmBnXp material. The interest in these materials is caused by their properties. The results are discussed for three main groups of structural families: cubic-spinel structures, defective tetragonal structures, and other structures like layered and wurtzite-type modifications. A systematic analysis of the behavior of cubic (spinel), tetragonal (defect chalcopyrites and stannites) and other crystal modifications of AB2X4 compounds under hydrostatic pressure is performed. The behavior of AIIAl2S4, AIIGa2S4, AIIAl2Se4 and AIIGa2Se4 compounds with defective tetragonal structures, compounds with layered and wurtzite structures under hydrostatic pressure and the pressure dependence of the band gap, lattice parameters, interatomic distances, vibrational modes and pressure-induced phase transitions is discussed. Many of these compounds, except oxide spinels, undergo a pressure-induced phase transition towards the rocksalt-type structure. The phase transition is preceded by disorder in the cation sublattice. The dependence of the transition pressure to the rocksalt-type structure as a function of the compound ionicity and the size criterion is analyzed. At high pressures, all ordered-vacancy compounds are found to exhibit a band anticrossing between several conduction bands that leads to a strong decrease of its pressure coefficient and consequently to a strong non-linear pressure dependence of the direct bandgap energy. Theoretical studies of phase transitions in several ordered-vacancy compounds reveal that the existence of ordered vacancies alter the cation-anion bond distances and their compressibilities. The book is written for students, Ph D. students and specialists in materials science, phase transitions and new materials.
