7.8: Section 3-D Band Diagrams and Tensor Effective Mass Band diagrams characterize the effect of the crystal geometry on the behavior of the electrons within the semiconductor. We discuss 3-D bands and the tensor form of the effective mass. The band edge diagrams plotting energy vs. position provide convenient pictures for device operation such as for diodes. Later sections show the band-edge diagrams owe their...
