Shallow Impurity States in Semiconductors: Theoretical Aspects

  • R. Resta
Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)

Abstract

The introduction of a small amount of impurities or point defects in a crystalline semiconductor may change the electric properties over several orders of magnitude,(1) and is the basis of electronic devices. The technological importance of such properties has given rise to a lot of theoretical and experimental work devoted to the study of impurity states.
