Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics


The distribution of the potential and current density in anisotropic single crystals and films in electric and magnetic fields is treated. Formulas and relations of practical value for studies of the kinetic coefficients of electron transport in materials for electronics are obtained by solving the boundary problem of electrodynamics. The results of the work are presented in a form convenient for practical use, which allow the application of computers for analyzing experimental data. The results of the theoretical calculations are checked experimentally.
