This book covers the physics of semiconductors on an introductory level, assuming that the reader already has some knowledge of condensed matter physics. Crystal structure, band structure, carrier transport, phonons, scattering processes and optical properties are presented for typical semiconductors such as silicon, but III-V and II-VI compounds are also included. In view of the increasing importance of wide-gap semiconductors, the electronic and optical properties of these materials are dealt with too.
Crystal structure and reciprocal lattice; electrons in a periodic potential; models of a band structure - electrons and holes; density of states and carrier statistics; carrier transport; phonons and phonon statistics; scattering processes; excitons; optical absorption and emission; electroabsorption; magnetoabsorption; fundamental constants and equivalent units.
