Theory of Optical Processes in Semiconductors: Bulk and Microstructures

P. K. Basu


Semiconductor optoelectronic devices are at the heart of all information generation and processing systems and are likely to be essential components of future optical computers. With more emphasis on optoelectronics and photonics in graduate programmes in physics and engineering, there is a need for a text providing a basic understanding of the important physical phenomena involved. Such a training is necessary for the design, optimization, and search for new materials, devices, and application areas. This book provides a simple quantum mechanical theory of important optical processes, i.e. ba ... More

Keywords: optoelectronics, optical computers, photonics, quantum mechanical theory, absorption, recombination, electro-optic effects, quantization of radiation, band picture, k p perturbation
