Series: Modern Problems in Condensed Matter Sciences

Our understanding of condensed matter is developing rapidly and the numerous new insights gained in this field define to a significant degree the face of contemporary science. Furthermore, discoveries made in this area are shaping present and future technology. This being so, it is clear that the most important results and directions for future developments can only be covered by an international group of authors working in co-operation. With the support of a distinguished Advisory Editorial Board, areas of current interest that have reached a level of maturity to be reviewed, are selected for the series and each contributed volume has, accordingly, two editors. Monographs, written by either Western or Soviet authors, are also included. The complete series will provide the most comprehensive coverage available of condensed matter science. The publishing house "Nauka", publishes the volumes in the Russian language. This way the broadest possible readership is ensured.
Book Series: Spectroscopy of Nonequilibrium Electrons and Phonons

Most recent volume

Volume . Spectroscopy of Nonequilibrium Electrons and Phonons

Published: 23rd December 1992 Editors: C.V. Shank B.P. Zakharchenya
The physics of nonequilibrium electrons and phonons in semiconductors is an important branch of fundamental physics that has many practical applications, especially in the development of ultrafast and ultrasmall semiconductor devices. This volume is devoted to different trends in the field which are presently at the forefront of research. Special attention is paid to the ultrafast relaxation processes in bulk semiconductors and two-dimensional semiconductor structures, and to their study by different spectroscopic methods, both pulsed and steady-state. The evolution of energy and space distribution of nonequilibrium electrons and the relaxation kinetics of hot carriers and phonons are considered under various conditions such as temperature, doping and pumping intensity by leading experts in the field.
