Dynamical Processes in Disordered Systems

  • R. Silbey
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 46)

Abstract

We discuss the effect of disorder on dynamical processes in solids. In particular, we treat donor (to acceptor) decay, excitation diffusion, trapping and optical line shapes in disordered systems. The modelling of disorder with fractals is discussed.

Keywords

Fractal Dimension Hausdorff Dimension Equilateral Triangle Percolation Cluster Wait Time Distribution
