Impurity Bands in Silicon and Germanium

  • Nevill Mott
Part of the Institute for Amorphous Studies Series book series (IASS)


An account is given of some of the developments which have led to a better understanding of conduction in impurity bands, since the work of Hellmut Fritzsche opened up the subject.
