Review of the Linear Optical Properties

  • Claus F. Klingshirn
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


In this brief chapter, we shall review and summarize some of the aspects of the linear optical properties of semiconductors that were presented in the preceeding chapters in some detail.
