absorption coefficient

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n absorption coefficient a measure of the rate of decrease in the intensity of electromagnetic radiation (as light) as it passes through a given substance; the fraction of incident radiant energy absorbed per unit mass or thickness of an absorber "absorptance equals 1 minus transmittance"

The diffusion length of electron-hole pairs in Ge exceeds 0.4 mm,15, 16 so that reabsorption cannot be neglected, and since the absorption coefficient is higher for 0.8 eV than for 0.7 eV photons, the observed direct gap PL is preferentially suppressed.
