As the number of equivalent conduction band valleys in Si is six, there is a set of donor levels associated with each valley. A given donor level therefore possesses a sixfold degeneracy. Another additional consideration in the calculation of donor-binding energy is the wave vector (k) dependence of the permittivity, which leads to coupling between impurity states associated with different extrema. Baldareshi  showed that the sixfold ground state for donors in Si is split into a singlet (A1) ground state, a doublet excited state (E), and a triplet (T2) excited state.
4 buffer substrate on a Si substrate. If Si and Ge layers are grown alternately on this thick substrate, then Si will be tensile strained and Ge will be compressed. The critical thickness values are hC (Si) ¼ 166 A and hC (Ge) ¼ 113A . 6 Band Offsets and Band Lineup As noted already, when two semiconductors join up to form a heterojunction, discontinuities occur at the conduction and valence bands at the heterointerface. If one of the semiconductors is coherently strained on the other, the band structure is modiﬁed by three basic effects: an alloy-only effect for the unstrained material DEa, the shift due to hydrostatic strain DEh, and the change due to uniaxial or biaxial strain DEs.
It has been found that Ge becomes a direct-gap semiconductor for a wide range of concentration and also the band alignment is type I, with both the valence and conduction band edges localized in the Ge layer. 15. 17. The zero of energy is chosen at the top of the valence band in the ternary barrier layer. Recently, a self-consistent pseudo-potential plane wave method, within the mixed-alloy supercell model of alloys, has been employed in . This method is more accurate than virtual-crystal approximation (VCA).
