Theory of Defects in Solids: Electronic Structure of Defects in Insulators and Semiconductors

A. M. Stoneham


This book discusses the theory of defects in semiconductors and insulators. It focuses on the electronic structure of point defects in insulators and semiconductors, with discussions of underlying assumptions, methods, and how to calculate what is observed experimentally. The most important types of defects and impurities are analysed, with full comparisons of theory and experiment. For many topics, it is the only comprehensive and critical discussion of approaches and the use of theory alongside experiment.

Keywords: semiconductors, insulators, electronic structure, impurities, theory and experiment
