Term (Index) Definition
Einstein relationship  relationship between diffusion coefficient and mobility of charge carriers in semiconductor; diff. coeff. is proportional to mobility with kT/q as a proportionality factor.
mobility  important parameter defining transport of free charge carriers in semiconductor, and hence, semiconductor's conductivity; proportionality factor between semiconductor conductivity and concentration of charge carriers; different for different semiconductors due to the difference in the effective nass of charge carriers in different semiconductors; higher for electrons than holes due to lower effective mass.
