The CVD techniques rely on the gases which are transported into a reaction
chamber for deposition. In this chapter, the fundamental physics relating to these
techniques are introduced to enable

The Poisson-Boltzmann Equation
In this chapter, we give a theoretical treatment of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation,
and discuss the various approximations that enter into it, setting the stage for the various theoretical extensions that are exper
