The first true "introduction" to semiconductor optoelectronic devices, this book provides an accessible, well-organized overview of optoelectric devices that emphasizes basic principles. Coverage begins with an optional review of key concepts- such as properties of compound semiconductor, quantum mechanics, semiconductor statistics, carrier transport properties, optical processes, and junction theory- then progress gradually through more advanced topics. The "Second Edition" has been both updated and expanded to include the recent developments in the field.
