About this book

Absorption spectroscopy provides information on the chemical nature, atomic structure and concentration of hydrogen-like centers, to which belong most of the dopants of semiconductors and insulators. In this book, an introduction to the bulk optical properties of these materials and to the properties of hydrogen-like centers is first provided, followed by a description of set-ups used in absorption spectroscopy. The results of the calculations of the energy levels of these centres by effective-mass theory are exposed. Detailed absorption data on specific classes of centres are compared with theory, and atomic structures are deduced from absorption measurements under external perturbations.

About the authors

B. Pajot has been a Directeur de Recherches of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). He has worked at Groupe de Physique des Solides, a laboratory associated to CNRS (now part of Institut des NanoSciences de Paris), where he has been mainly involved in the spectroscopy of impurities and defects in semiconductors.

B. Clerjaud is Physics Professor at Université Pierre et Marie Curie. He presently works at the Institut des NanoSciences de Paris. He has a long experience in the study of impurities in solids, in particular in the investigation of transition metals and light impurities.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Provide a comprehensive and up to date overview of the field. … the book constitutes a valuable resource for linking the development of materials characterization for micro and opto electronics with the new needs of the growing photovoltaic industry. … a very useful manual for researchers from graduate to higher levels and for experimentalists who want to enter the subject. … The books should find a place in the bookshelf of every researcher interested in semiconductor materials and devices … .” (S. Sanguinetti, Il Nuovo Saggiatore, Vol. 27 (1-2), 2011)
