Transport Phenomena in Heavily Doped Semiconductors

  • Victor I. Fistul’
Part of the Monographs in Semiconductor Physics book series (MOSEPH, volume 1)


Transport Equation. So far we have considered carriers under statistical equilibrium conditions. We shall now deal with the processes taking place under the action of external forces (electric and magnetic fields, temperature, etc.) — processes of great practical and theoretical interest. In these processes, carriers are no longer under equilibrium conditions. We thus have phenomena associated with the ordered motion of carriers and known as transport or transfer phenomena.


Transport Phenomenon Hall Effect Carrier Density Impurity Concentration Thermoelectric Power 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
