Energy Levels of Electrons Bound to Shallow Donors in GaP

  • B. Pódör


Energy levels of electrons bound to S, Te and Si donors in GaP were determined from Hall effect and infrared absorption measurements. From the Hall data ground state ionization energies of S, Te and Si donors, and valley-orbit splitting energies of the is states of S and Te donors were deduced. Infrared absorption lines due to transitions from the is state of the donors to p-like excited levels were observed. Several excited states were assigned on the basis of the hydrogenic effective mass theory. Thermal and optical ionization energies of S, Te and Si donors were found.
