Luminescence Spectroscopy of Semiconductors

Ivan Pelant and Jan Valenta


Luminescence of semiconductors is nowadays based on very firm background of solid state physics. The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the study of the physical principles underlying inorganic semiconductor luminescence phenomena. It guides the reader starting from the very introductory definitions over luminescence of bulk semiconductors and finishing at the up-to-date luminescence spectroscopy of individual nanocrystals. The book thus set the aim of filling the gap between general textbooks on semiconductors and dedicated advanced monographs. At the beginning, important know ... More

Keywords: bulk semiconductors, low-dimensional semiconductors, spontaneous luminescence, microscopic origin, exciton processes, effects of high excitation, stimulated emission, electroluminescence, spectroscopy of individual nanocrystals, experimentalist’s point of view
