Energy Transfer in Semiconductors

  • C. Klingshirn
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 114)


From the rather large and complex field of energy transfer processes in semiconductors we selected for this article the following topics: The transfer of energy from a photon-field in vacuum through the surface into a semiconductor, the propagating modes of light in a semiconductor (the socalled polaritons), the transfer of energy from exciton-polaritons to the phonon field and finally the transfer of energy from one exciton-polariton mode to others by nonlinear interaction.
