This monograph explores the habit of impurity atoms in semiconductors, integrating experimental info with their theoretical interpretation. the writer starts through sincerely explaining the elemental physics of hydrogen-like impurities, atoms with partly stuffed electron shells, and amphoteric, isovalent, and gas-forming impurities to assist readers comprehend the houses imparted through those impurities. the writer additionally analyzes the macroscopic and microscopic mechanisms of the solubility and migration of impurities and defects within the crystal lattice. This booklet brings to mild paintings performed within the former Soviet Union and highlights numerous impurities that experience power, yet haven't but came across frequent software.
