Properties of the Surface

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


So far we have dealt with the bulk properties of semiconductors and tacitly assumed that the crystal is extended infinitely. We will now briefly discuss the influence of the crystal surface on the transport properties of semiconductors.
