Term (Index) Definition
surface recombination  recombination of free charge carriers in semiconductor via electrically active centers (defects) at its surface.
recombination  process resulting in annihilation of free charge carriers in semiconductor; reversal of the generation process; typically electron recombining with hole looses energy and moves from the conduction band to valence band.
recombination site  electrically active imperfection (crystal defect and/or contaminant) in the bulk or at the surface of semiconductor which promotes recombination of free charge carriers.
Term (Index) Definition
surface recombination velocity  rate of surface recombination; higher in the case of highly defective semiconductor surfaces.
recombination site  electrically active imperfection (crystal defect and/or contaminant) in the bulk or at the surface of semiconductor which promotes recombination of free charge carriers.
