Item description for Basic Semiconductor Physics by Chihiro Hamaguchi...
This book presents a detailed description of the basic physics of semiconductors. All the important equations describing the properties of these materials are derived without the help of other textbooks. The reader is assumed to have only a basic command of mathematics and some elementary semiconductor physics. The text covers a wide range of important semiconductor phenomena, from the simple to the advanced. Examples include recent progress in semiconductor quantum structures, such as two-dimensional electron-gas systems, ballistic transport, the quantum Hall effect, the Landauer formula, the Coulomb blockade, and the single-electron transistor.

talks about superlattices and quantum Hall effect Jan 30, 2006
Covering the basics of this field, the text unsurprisingly has much content that is covered in other, well-established books, like Ashcroft and Mermin or Kittel. But perhaps what most distinguishes Hamaguchi's effort are the sections on superlattices and the quantum Hall effect. These are omitted from those other books, if only because when they were written, the phenomena had not been invented or discovered. But because of the importance of these subjects, it is good to have them here, in an introductory text.
Hamaguchi also gives a comprehensive listing of the different types of scattering that happen in a semiconductor. But the brevity of space devoted to each really means this is little more than a definition of terms.
