Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


We give a survey of semiconductor materials suitable for preparation of semiconductor lasers. The materials are compounds of elements of the third and fifth group of the periodic table or compounds of elements of the second and the sixth group. The compounds have energy gaps corresponding to gap frequencies ranging from the infrared to the near UV.
