    This book is specifically concerned with the basic electronic and optical properties of two dimensional semiconductor heterostructures based on III-V and II-Vi compounds. It explores various consequences of one-dimensional size-quantization, a genuine quantum-mechanical effect, on the most basic physical properties of heterolayers. In the last couple of decades, high-performance electronic and optoelectronic devices based on semiconductor heterostructures have been required to obtain increasingly strict and well-defined performances, needing a detailed control, at the atomic level, of the structural composition of the buried interfaces. This goal has been achieved by an improvement of the epitaxial growth techniques and 3/5(2).

      This book deals with description of both characterization techniques and theoretical models needed to understand and predict the structural and electronic properties of semiconductor heterostructures and nanostructures. Comprehensive collection of the most powerful characterization techniques for semiconductor heterostructures and nanostructuresBrand: Elsevier Science. Publisher Summary. This chapter describes the electronic properties of thin semiconductor heterostructures. The simplest quantum situation to be dealt with consists of a single layer of material A embedded between two thick layers of material, where B has a bandgap larger than A, and where the band discontinuities are such that both types of carriers are confined in the A material.

      As an example, the intersubband lasers discussed in this book have a broad range of previously unobtainable characteristics and associated applications as a result of the nanoscale dimensional control of the underlying semiconductor heterostructures. As this book illustrates, an astounding variety of heterostructures can be fabricated with Brand: Michael A Stroscio.   The past few decades of research and development in solid-state semicon ductor physics and electronics have witnessed a rapid growth in the drive to exploit quantum mechanics in the design and function of semiconductor devices. This has been fueled for instance by the remarkable advances in our ability to fabricate nanostructures such as quantum wells, quantum wires and 3/5(2).

Heterostructures represent an opportunity to manufacture efficient solar cells from highly absorbing thin-film materials without substantial losses through electron–hole recombination at the front surface.

This is illustrated by the structures of the CdS/CdTe and CdS/CIGS solar cells where a wide-band-gap semiconductor (here, CdS) serves as a “window” partner to a lower-band-gap “absorber” where.
