Wiley series in materials for electronic and optoelectronic applications


Adachi (electronic engineering, Gunma U.) discusses the key properties of the group-IV, III-V and II-VI semiconductors and systematize these properties from the aspect of solid state physics. He includes structural properties, thermal properties, elastic properties, lattice dynamic properties, collective effects and response characteristics, energy-band structures and gaps, energy- band effective masses, deformation potentials, electron affinity and Schottky barrier height, various optical properties and carrier transport systems. Each topic includes references.
