Paper Abstract

The rate of tunnel surface recombination (TSR) in a p-n structure has been calculated as a function of the excitation level and temperature in a semiclassical approximation under the assumption that the excess energy of a recombining electron is transferred to phonons or to a photon. The approximating analytical expressions obtained are applied in calculations of the effect of TSR on the characteristics of photodiodes, solar cells, light-emitting diodes and diode lasers.
