The EP from HD Kane Type Materials Under Magnetic Quantization

Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 262)


With the advent of nano-photonics, there has been a considerable interest in studying the optical processes in semiconductors and their nanostructures. It appears from the literature, that the investigations have been carried out to study the EP from the optoelectronic materials on the assumption that the carrier energy spectra are invariant quantities in the presence of intense light waves , which is not fundamentally true. In this chapter, we study the EP from HD III-V, ternary and quaternary materials in the presence of light waves on the basis of newly formulated dispersion laws under magnetic quantization. It appears that EP oscillates with inverse quantizing magnetic field due to SdH effect, it increases with increasing concentration and decreases with increasing intensity and wave length in different manners which are totally band structure dependent. The Sect.  6.4 contains 15 open research problems.
