A comprehensive treatment of the fundamentals of semiconductor physics and materials science. The first edition of the Survey of Semiconductor Physics set the standard for the multifaceted exploration of semiconductor physics. Now, Dr. Karl B?er, one of the world's leading experts in solid-state physics, with assistance from a team of the fields top researchers, expands this coverage in the Second Edition. Completely updated and substantially expanded, the Survey of Semiconductor Physics, Second Edition covers the basic elements in the entire field of semiconductor physics, emphasizing the materials and surface science involved. The Second Edition uses similar theoretical approaches and analyses for the basic material classes: crystalline, amorphous, quantum structures, and organics. The first volume provides thorough coverage of the structure of semiconductors, including: Phonons Energy bands Photons as they interact with the semiconductor and other particles Defects Generation and recombination Kinetics Part I of the Volume 2 begins with a thorough treatment of the carrier transport in homogeneous semiconductors, creating the context for the studies of inhomogeneous semiconductors that consume the majority of the text. The editors' primary concerns are the effects and implications of surfaces, interfaces, inhomogeneous doping, and space charges upon the electronic transport. Part II provides a general overview of the types of abrupt material inhomogeneities that are produced by interfaces and surfaces. Part III presents a detailed mathematical analysis of the interrelation between space charges, fields, and carrier transport, applying these calculations to a wide array of specific examples. Returning to his stated emphasis on practical application, B?er then focuses on the material preparations that are essential to produce semiconductor devices in Part IV and examines two specific examples of semiconductors-solar cells and light-emitting diodes-in Part V. In both volumes, extensive appendices simplify searches for important formulae and tables. An elaborate word index and reference listings allow readers to use the reference in multiple ways to discover expanding literature; to explore similarities and connecting principles in other fields; to find out how others in adjacent fields came up with intriguing solutions to similar problems; and to obtain a broad overview of the entire field of semiconductor physics.
