This book reviews up-to-date ideas of how the luminescence radiation in semiconductors originates and how to analyze it experimentally. The book fills a gap between general textbooks on optical properties of solids and specialized monographs on luminescence. It is unique in its coherenttreatment of the phenomenon of luminescence from the very introductory definitions, from light emission in bulk crystalline and amorphous materials to the advanced chapters that deal with semiconductor nano objects, including spectroscopy of individual nanocrystals. The theory of radiativerecombination channels in semiconductors is considered on a level of intuitive physical understanding rather than rigorous quantum mechanical treatment. The book is based on teaching and written in the style of a graduate text with plenty of tutorial material, illustrations, and problem sets at chapter ends. It is designed predominantly for students in physics, optics, optoelectronics and materials science.
Ivan Pelant was Head of the Department of Chemical Physics at Charles University in Prague from 1990-1993. He has been Researcher at the Institute of Physics at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i., Prague from 1994 until present and was appointed as Professor of Quantum Optics and Optoelectronics, Charles University ...
