Safa Kasap is currently a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Electronic Materials and Devices in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. He obtained his BSc (1976), MSc (1978) and PhD (1983) degrees from the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of London, specializing in amorphous semiconductors and chalcogenide glasses. In 1996 he was awarded the DSc (Engineering) from London University for his research contributions to materials science in electrical engineering. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Materials. His research interests are in amorphous semiconductors, glasses for photonics, photoconductors, electrical, optical and thermal properties of materials, and related topics, with more than one hundred refereed journal papers in these areas. He is the Deputy Editor of the Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Electronics (Springer), and a Series Editor for the Series on Materials in Electronic and Optoelectronics (Wiley).
Peter Capper has worked for the same company (through several name changes) for over 30 years in the area of II-VI compounds for infrared applications, latterly as a Materials Team Leader in charge of group of scientists working on the growth and characterisation of these compounds. This has been mainly in the area of cadmium mercury telluride and cadmium telluride, the premier infrared materials, by a range of bulk and epitaxial techniques. He has given several invited talks in Japan, USA and Europe, has coauthored over 100 Journal papers, holds one patent and has edited/written 5 books in the field since 1987. He is on the Editorial Board of the J. Mater. Sci.: Mater. Electron. (Springer) and is a Series Editor for Wiley on Materials for Electronics and Optoelectronics.
