Paper Abstract

A discussion is given of the various factors effecting the minority carrier distribution excited in a semiconducting sample by a focused light beam. Parameters considered include the objective lens numerical aperture, the surface recombination velocity and the exciting beam scan speed. The discussion is aimed at producing a theoretical understanding of the optical beam induced current (OBIC) and photoluminescence (PL) semiconductor imaging techniques.
