Spectra of Associated Donor-Acceptor Pairs

Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 8)


This article deals with associated donor-acceptor spectra in semiconductors. Here the emphasis is put upon an elementary formalism. However it is found that some of the basic points of the theory (i.e., especially assuming that the matrix element of dipolar moment for the D-A transition is proportional to the overlap integral between the donor and the acceptor) surely need a more elaborate discussion.
