Carrier Transport in the Warped-Sphere Model

  • Karlheinz Seeger
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 40)

Abstract

The valence bands of germanium, silicon and the III—V compounds have an extremum at k = 0 and are degenerate there. The constant-energy surfaces for this case are warped spheres which have already been discussed in Sect. 2.4 (Figs. 2.28 a-2.28 c) . In the zincblende lattice typical for III—V compounds, there is no center of inversion, in contrast to the diamond lattice.
