His topics include the growth of semiconductor thin films, potential barrier with a finite height, density of states, the optical absorption coefficient of the interband transition in quantum wells, the Boltzmann transport equation, hetero-junction field effect transistors, and light-emitting diodes.
Their findings are important because they help understand the influence of the density of states on photovoltaic performance: an increase in the depth and width of the density of states corresponds to an increase in the photocurrent, but also a drop in the open-circuit voltage.
Each chapter presents about 15-20 problems within a text explaining a particular topic, among them inter-atomic forces and lattice vibrations, density of states, thermodynamics of non-interacting quasi-particles, and interactions and phase transitions.
Appendices address Poisson statistics, parametric amplification, the density of states, low-dimensional semiconductor structures, nuclear magnetic resonance, and Bose-Einstein condensation.
