Spin Properties of Confined Electrons in Si

Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 157)

Abstract

With its nuclear charge of \(Z=14\) silicon is a rather light element. Therefore spin-orbit interaction is weak in Si crystals as it is dominated, also in solids, by atomic effects (see Chap.  1).
