Magneto-Optical Studies of Impurities

Part of the Nato Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 60)


The simplest model of the electronic states of impurities is that of a “hydrogenic” atom with the energies scaled by the appropriate effective mass and dielectric constant. Complicated band structures are not described by the hydrogenic model but the modifications to the hydrogenic states can be calculated by effective mass theory. However there are still a number of modifications which have to be made to effective mass theory including central cell and polaron effects. Examples of the hydrogenic model, the changes brought about by complex band structures and the breakdown of effective mass theory are given with particular reference to magneto-optical experiments performed by the Oxford Semiconductor group.
