- TL;DR Summary
- Which effective mass should I use?

https://ecee.colorado.edu/~bart/book/effmass.htm#short

Looks like the effective mass for holes in Si can either be 0.57 or 0.81, according to the link above.

Is there a temperature regime where one effective mass should be used instead of the other?

Is anyone able to explain in layman's terms why the effective mass is disputed?
