    A qualitative change was observed in the three-crystal x-ray spectra during fluorination of a Pt/LaF[sub 3]/Si structure. This may be attributed to smoothing of the surface of the platinum film, most likely as a result of the formation of platinum tetrafluoride which may undergo partial...

    It is shown that in the analysis of an avalanche process in a p-n heterojunction it is necessary, as a rule, to take into account the multiplication of carriers in the wide-gap part of the space-charge region of the p-n heterojunction even when the difference between the band gaps &epsilon[sub...

    It is demonstrated that X-ray topography can be used for imaging the boundary between a microchannel silicon layer and a substrate, evaluating the quality of this interface, determining the channel depth, and revealing mechanical stresses. This technique can be used for nondestructive monitoring...
