Term (Index) Definition
radiative recombination  electron-hole recombination process in which energy is released in the form of electromagnetic radiation; in the case of band-to-band recombination energy of radiation released corresponds to the bandgap of semiconductor.
non-radiative recombination  electron-hole recombination process in recombination of electrons and holes which does not produce photons, but mostly phonons; i.e. not radiation is generated; occurs in semiconductors featuring indirect bandgap.
