Kane energy of semiconductors

  1. Oct 4, 2009 #1
    Please help me ASAP. I need to know approximate value for Kane Energy(Ep) of GaAs for calculations of oscillator strength.
    Thank you!

    I do not know that value myself, but the book Optoelectronics by Rosencher and Vinter gives a value of 22,71 eV for the Kane energy of GaAs.

    Thank you very much, Cthugha. I download this book and find the table with Kane energies. I guess it is very useful book, for investigators of optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures.
