Quantum Theory of Optical and Electronic Properties of Semiconductors Hartmut Haug, Stephan W. Koch This invaluable textbook presents the basic elements needed to understand and research into semiconductor physics. From the reviews:"This is the first monograph that treats the electronic properties of all different types of semiconductor interfaces. The originality of Moench is more in the fact that he uses the interface-induced gap stats (IFIGS) as the unifying concept of his book. Real-world applications are highlighted throughout the book, stressing the links between physical principles and actual devices. Electronic and Optoelectronic Properties of Semiconductor Structures provides engineering and physics students and practitioners with complete and coherent coverage of key modern semiconductor by: S. Coyle, D. Diamond, in Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology, Organic Semiconductors. Organic semiconductors, polymers and oligomers, having the electrical properties of semiconductors and the mechanical properties of plastics, are good candidates for developing electronic and optoelectronic flexible components, for example, transistors and light-emitting diodes .

Semiconductors possess specific electrical properties. A substance that conducts electricity is called a conductor, and a substance that does not conduct electricity is called an insulator. Semiconductors are substances with properties somewhere between them. Electrical properties can . A semiconductor can be regarded as an insulator with a narrow band gap, εg. Semiconductors may be divided into two classes: those for which the points in k-space corresponding to the highest occupied valence band state, εv, and the lowest unoccupied conduction band state, εc, lie directly above each other (a direct band gap material); and those for which these two points are separated in k. Almost all semiconductor devices contain metal-semiconductor, insulator-semiconductor, insulator-metal and/or semiconductor-semiconductor interfaces; and their electronic properties determine the device characteristics. This is the first monograph that treats the electronic properties of all different types of semiconductor interfaces. Single Crystals of Electronic Materials: Growth and Properties is a complete overview of the state-of-the-art growth of bulk semiconductors. It is not only a valuable update on the body of information on crystal growth of well-established electronic materials, such as silicon, III-V, II-VI and IV-VI semiconductors, but also includes chapters on.

The electronic structure of a series of III–V zinc-blende semiconductors is calculated by the full-potential linearized augmented-plane-wave method, using different exchange-correlation potential approximations. The calculated equilibrium lattice parameters and bulk moduli are shown to agree well with experiment, the band gap being acutely sensitive to the choice of the exchange-correlation. This book presents a detailed exposition of the formalism and application of k.p theory for both bulk and nanostructured semiconductors. For bulk crystals, this is the first time all the major techniques for deriving the most popular Hamiltonians have been provided in one place. A symmetric van der Pauw disk (12) of homogeneous nonmagnetic semiconductor material, such as indium antimonide, with an embedded concentric conducting material (22), such as gold, inhomogeneity exhibits room temperature geometric extraordinary magnetoresistance (EMR) as high as %, 9, % and , % at magnetic fields of , and Tesla, respectively. First-generation semiconductors could not be properly termed "doped- they were simply very impure. Uncontrolled impurities hindered the discovery of physical laws, baffling researchers and evoking pessimism and derision in advocates of the burgeoning "pure" physical disciplines. The eventual.
