Abstract

The title of this chapter is “Excitons.” However, within the limitation of a single chapter, it will be impossible to give a detailed account of this broad subject, even making use of Dr. Reynolds’ chapter dealing with the important II–VI compounds (Chapter 10). Therefore, this chapter will present selected topics within the subject area, rather than a general view. For our purpose, it will be necessary to give only an introduction to the theory of excitons. A detailed treatment can be found in the author’s review article [1], the excellent monograph of Knox [2], as well as the original papers of Elliott [3], Haken [4], and others quoted in the first two references.
