9780511529344: Electrons and Phonons in Semiconductor Multilayers (Cambridge Studies in Semiconductor Physics and Microelectronic Engineering)

This book provides a detailed description of the quantum confinement of electrons and phonons in semiconductor wells, superlattices and quantum wires, and shows how this affects their mutual interactions. It discusses the transition from microscopic to continuum models, emphasizing the use of quasi-continuum theory to describe the confinement of optical phonons and electrons. The hybridization of optical phonons and their interactions with electrons are treated, as are other electron scattering mechanisms. The book concludes with an account of the electron distribution function in three-, two- and one-dimensional systems, in the presence of electrical or optical excitation. This text will be of great use to graduate students and researchers investigating low-dimensional semiconductor structures, as well as to those developing new devices based on these systems.

Book Description:

The ability to fabricate precisely characterized semiconductor structures of just a few molecules' thickness has catalyzed corresponding advances in our theoretical understanding of the physics of such systems. This book provides a detailed description of the quantum confinement of electrons and phonons in semiconductor wells, superlattices and quantum wires, and shows how this affects their mutual interactions. It will be of great use to those investigating low-dimensional semiconductor structures, or developing new devices based on such systems.

About the Author:

B. K. Ridley is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Computing and Electronic Systems at the University of Essex, Colchester. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, and was awarded the Paul Dirac Prize and Medal in 2001 by the Institute of Physics.
