1. The characteristics of some of these absorptions are described in the following sections. 1 Crystal structure, lattice parameter a, bandgap energy Eg at 300 K, type of bandgap (D = Direct and I = Indirect), change in Eg per unit temperature change (dEg/dT) at 300 K, bandgap wavelength lg, and refractive index n close to lg. 2], the approach here is to provide concise descriptions with more insight from an experimentalist’s point of view. 3]. 2 LATTICE OR RESTSTRAHLEN ABSORPTION AND INFRARED REFLECTION In the infrared wavelength region, ionic crystals reflect and absorb light strongly due to the resonance interaction of the electromagnetic (EM) wave field with the transverse optical (TO) phonons.

10] with the appropriate scattering mechanism. 11]. Absorption due to free carriers is commonly written as a ∝ lp, where the index p depends primarily on the scattering mechanism, though it is also influenced by the compensation doping ratio, if the semiconductor has been doped by compensation, and the free-carrier concentration. In the case of lattice scattering one has to consider scattering from acoustic and optical phonons. 5. 12]. 3. 16]). 9). 16]. 4(b). 4 BAND-TO-BAND OR FUNDAMENTAL ABSORPTION (CRYSTALLINE SOLIDS) Band-to-band absorption or fundamental absorption of radiation occurs due to the photoexcitation of an electron from the valence band to the conduction band.
