    The Hall effect and electrical resistivity of n-type CuInSe[sub 2] single crystals are measured between 4.2 and 300 K. Using a single conduction band model, the variation of the electron concentration with temperature above 100 K is explained in terms of the thermal activation of a shallow...

    The pressure dependence of the band gap energy of the dilute nitride GaNP is analyzed. It is found that the pressure dependence of the Γ conduction band minimum (CBM) is stronger than that of the X CBM. We also find that the energy difference between the X CBM and the Γ CBM in GaNP...

    An investigation of the model of porous silicon in the form of periodic set of silicon nanowires has been carried out. The electronic energy structure was studied using a first-principle band method--the method of pseudopotentials (ultrasoft potentials in the basis of plane waves) and linearized...
