Luminescence Spectroscopy of Semiconductors, Paperback / softback Book



This book reviews up-to-date ideas of how the luminescence radiation in semiconductors originates and how to analyze it experimentally.

The book fills a gap between general textbooks on optical properties of solids and specialized monographs on luminescence.

It is unique in its coherent treatment of the phenomenon of luminescence from the very introductory definitions, from light emission in bulk crystalline and amorphous materials to the advanced chapters that dealwith semiconductor nano objects, including spectroscopy of individual nanocrystals.

The theory of radiative recombination channels in semiconductors is considered on a level of intuitive physical understanding rather than rigorous quantum mechanical treatment.

The book is based on teaching and written in the style of a graduate text with plenty of tutorial material, illustrations, and problem sets at chapter ends.

It is designed predominantly for students in physics, optics, optoelectronics and materials science.
