- TL;DR Summary
- Suppose I have a perfect crystal(e.g.TiO2-Rutile, band gap=3ev), under UV light, there should photoconductivity, according to the condensed matter theory, some of these excited conduction band electrons would form small polarons, I am wondering how many percent of the free conduction band electrons would form polarons, and how many of them would stay as free electrons until recombination with holes?
