This text is suitable for the senior undergraduate or new graduate student majoring in electrical engineering or physics. It will also be useful to solid-state scientists and device engineers involved in semi-conductor design and technology. The text provides a lucid account of band structure, density of states, charge transport, energy transport and optical processes, and a detailed description of many devices. It includes sections on superlattices and quantum well structures, the effects of deep-level impurities on transport, the quantum Hall effect and the calculation of the influence of a magnetic field on the carrier distribution function. This 7th edition has been revised and corrected, and new sections have been added to some chapters, for example a section on the fractional quantum Hall effect.


om the contents: Elementary Properties of Semiconductors.- Energy Band Structure.- Semiconductor Statistics.- Charge and Energy Transport in a Nondegenerate Electron Gas.- Carrier Diffusion Processes.- Scattering Processes in a Spherical One-Valley Model.- Charge Transport and Scattering Processes in the Many-Valley Model.- Carrier Transport in the Warped-Sphere Model.- Quantum Effects in Transport Phenomena.- Impact Ionization and Avalanche Breakdown.- Optical Absorption and Reflection.- Photoconductivity.- Light Generation by Semiconductors.- Properties of the Surface, Interfaces, and the Quantum Hall Effect.- Miscellaneous Semiconductors.
