Carrier Transport in the Warped-Sphere Model

  • Karlheinz Seeger
Part of the Springer Study Edition book series (SSE)

Abstract

The valence bands of germanium, silicon, and the III-V compounds have an extremum at = 0 and are degenerate there. The constant-energy surfaces for this case are warped spheres which have already been discussed in Chap.2d (Figs. 2.29 and 2.30). In the zinc blende lattice typical for III-V compounds there is no center of inversion, in contrast to the diamond lattice.
