Recombination

Posted on: November 17, 2010

•If an electron is not transported recombination will occur
•Radiative Recombination
–The decay of the electron is accompanied by the emission of a photon
•Non-radiative Recombination
–The electron decays via defect states in the band gap and it’s energy is given up as heat
•We want to collect and transport the electron before it recombines
