Special Semiconducting Materials

Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)

Abstract

This chapter reviews semiconducting materials which, because of their electronic band structure or magnetic states, have special physical properties. These include narrow-gap semiconductors (Section 9.1) and magnetic semiconductors (Section 9.2). We then proceed to discuss in Section 9.3 semimagnetic semiconductors, namely semiconductors containing paramagnetic impurities, and in Section 9.4 half-metallic ferromagnets, which are metallic for spin-up electrons and semiconducting for spin-down electrons.

Keywords

Conduction Band Valence Band Heusler Alloy Anomalous Hall Effect Hole Spin 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
