We have investigated the optical properties of gallium arsenide (GaAs) in the photon energy range – eV. We obtained a refractive index which has a maximum value of at a photon energy of eV; an extinction coefficient which has a maximum value of at a photon energy of eV; the dielectric constant, the real part of the complex dielectric constant has a maximum value of 24 Cited by: Stephan W. Koch (born 23 May ) is a German theoretical is professor at the University of Marburg and works on condensed-matter theory, many-body effects, and laser theory. He is best known for his seminal contributions to the optical and electronic properties of semiconductors, semiconductor quantum optics, and semiconductor laser mater: University of Frankfurt. Optical properties of a semiconductor depends mainly on the band-gap of the semiconductor (I hope you know what is band-gap, if not please let me know). There are two types of semiconductors, (1) Direct band-gap (e.g. Silicon) (2) Indirect band-ga.

About this book. It is widely recognized that an understanding of the optical pro­ perties of matter will give a great deal of important information re­ levant to the fundamental physical properties. This is especially true in semiconductor physics for which, due to the intrinsic low screening of these materials, the optical response is quite rich.

It deals with elementary excitations in bulk and low-dimensional semiconductors, including quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots.

The basic principles underlying optical nonlinearities are developed, including excitonic and many-body plasma by: Optical Properties and Band Structure of Semiconductors, Volume 1 presents the experimental studies of the fundamental energy band structure of semiconductors and insulators.

This book provides detailed information of the available measurement methods and results. After providing the reader with a theoretical background, the author illustrates the specific properties of three-dimensionally confined semiconductors, such as the size dependence of energy states, optical transitions, and dephasing mechanisms, with the results from numerous experiments in linear and nonlinear spectroscopy.

Optical properties Optical property of a material is characterized and quantified by its interaction with the electromagnetic radiation. In semiconductors, the band structures are distinct from those of metals. The optical properties of a semiconductor can be defined as any property that involves the interaction between electromagnetic radiation or light and the semiconductor, including absorption, dif fraction polarization reflection, refraction, and scattering ef fects.

The optical properties of semiconductor NCs are determined by factors such as size, shape, surface and bulk defects, impurities, and crystallinity. The dependence on the NC size, the parameter that exerts the greatest influence, arises from changes to the surface-to.
