3.3.1 Semiconductor-Semiconductor Interfaces

The condition for the potential at the semiconductor-semiconductor interface reads:

    $\displaystyle \varphi_{s1} = \varphi_{s2}$ (3.81)
    $\displaystyle {\bf n}\cdot \varepsilon_{semi1} \cdot {\bf E}_{s1} - {\bf n} \cdot \varepsilon_{semi2} \cdot
{\bf E}_{s2} = \sigma_{surf}$ (3.82)

To calculate the carrier concentrations $ n,p$ and carrier temperatures $ {\it T}_\mathrm{\nu}$ at the semiconductor interfaces the following three models are available.
