By Peter T. Landsberg
This publication is dedicated to the most facets of the physics of recombination in semiconductors. it's the first e-book to deal completely and comprehensively with the topic, and as such is a self-contained quantity, introducing the techniques and mechanisms of recombination from a primary perspective. Professor Landsberg is an across the world stated specialist during this box, and whereas now not neglecting the occasional old insights, he's taking the reader to the frontiers of present examine. Following preliminary chapters on semiconductor records and recombination records, the textual content strikes directly to study the most recombination mechanisms: Auger results, effect ionisation, radiative recombination, disorder and multiphonon recombination. the ultimate bankruptcy bargains with the topical topic of quantum wells and low-dimensional constructions. Altogether the booklet covers a remarkably broad quarter of semiconductor physics. The publication can be of value to physicists, digital engineers and utilized mathematicians who're learning or gaining knowledge of the physics and functions of semiconductors. a few components of the e-book should be available to final-year undergraduates.
