Electronic properties of semiconductors: introductory remarks


  • Paulo Sérgio Guimarães Departamento de Física, Centro de Ciências Naturais e Exatas - CCNE Universidade Federal de Santa Maria - UFSM, Santa Maria, RS.




The aim of this text is to present a review of the electronic properties of semiconductor materials devoted mainly to undergraduate physics and related science students interested in contact the microscopic aspects that determine these properties. It will be offered a selection of topics covering most of the core of the subject.
