Reactions on Semiconductor Electrodes

Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)


The essential charge transfer processes in reactions at semiconductor electrodes can be described on the basis of an energy band model. The basic mechanisms are described and examples for typical processes are given. The main emphasis is put on photoeffects and various processes induced by light absorption in the semiconductor or in the electrolyte are discussed in detail.
