Optical Properties of Semiconductors [chapter]

Fundamentals of Solid State Engineering  
A computer based laboratory experiment in the physics lab for students of communications engineering, computer engineering and software engineering is described. The aim of the experiment is to bring the students at an early stage into practical contact to modern physics such as semiconductors, wave and quantum optics, and to gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of absorption and emission of light by semiconductors. The actual experiment is divided into three parts: After getting
