Classification of Chemical Ordering in Amorphous and Liquid Semiconductors

  • J. Robertson


Binary non-crystalline semiconductors are classified in terms of their bonding at and away from stoichiometry. Density of states models are developed for example systems : ℓ-CsAu, a-MgSb, a-GaAs, a-GeTe and ℓ-PbTe.
