This book is about electronic processes in nonideal heterojunctions in order to use this material in a high-quality optical fashion and for X-Ray image sensor development. The effects of accumulation and erasure of recorded optical information, as well as a satisfactory consistent theory of phenomena and effects are fully described and discussed in this book. The academic level of this book is advanced: It is for specialists studying photoelectronics, the physics of surfaces and sensorics as well as university professors, lecturers and higher school teachers. It could be used also as a textbook for post-graduate students, Masters of Sciences and undergraduate students.
