Impact of crystal defects on band diagram.?

  1. Jun 11, 2017 #1
    I was studying about Crystal defects in crystals and came to know that it has huge effect on band diagram.I don't know about their specific impact on band diagram.So what are major impacts of crystal defects on band diagram.?

    For example, in a semiconductor, if there is a dilute concentration of defects, they would induce isolated defect electronic states in the gap of the semiconductors. If the concentration of the defects increases they may create a whole new band.
