Excitons in II–VI Compounds

Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)

Abstract

The optical properties of II–VI compounds have been the subject of considerable study for many years; indeed, in the older published literature, there is a wealth of optical data, some of which are related to the fundamental properties of those materials. It has only been in recent years, however, that even the older data have been associated with the exciton structure. The more recent (mostly since 1959) magneto-optical data (spectral data obtained at high magnetic fields and low temperatures) are very closely related to the fundamental properties of the materials; these data have come to be very well understood in terms of excitons in these compounds. In fact, the isolation and subsequent elucidation of many properties fundamental to these materials has frequently been possible because of a better understanding of the intrinsic-exciton structure.
