Editorial Reviews


From the reviews of the ninth edition:

"This book of K. Seeger is one of the mostly used source book in the field of semiconductor physics. … it has become the reference book of many teachers, students and researchers, both in fundamental and applied solid state science. … Altogether … this book will undoubtedly continue to be very attractive as a reference book for teachers and researchers in the field of semiconductors." (Michel Wautelet, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 28 (1), 2006)

From the Back Cover

This well-established monograph, updated and now in its ninth edition, deals mainly with electron transport in, and optical properties of semiconductors. It includes lasers, e.g. the quantum cascade laser, quantum processes such as the quantum Hall effect, quantum dots, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, molecular electronics, the nitrides, and many other recent discoveries in the field. New diagrams and tables provide a comprehensive source of materials data. Selected problems help readers to consolidate their knowledge and invite teachers to use this text for graduate courses on semiconductor physics, solid state  physics, and physical electronics. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By DEBDEEP JENA on October 23, 2001
Format: Hardcover
If you are interested in semi-classical charge and energy transport theory in semiconductors, Seeger is still the best book to learn from. For experimentalists, this book is a boon since many formulaes are given in "reduced" forms - just plug in material constants and get a numerical value.
