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
