Interzone light absorption with consideration of multiphonon transitions in semiconductors with a Coulomb-like random field

  • 15 Accesses

Abstract

The method of calculating the interzone light absorption coefficient in a semiconductor with Coulomb-like random field developed by Bonch-Bruevich is generalized by inclusion of multiphonon processes. A formula is obtained for the frequency dependence of the absorption coefficient in the optical tail range in the Condon approximation with neglect of frequency effect.
