Item description for Noise Research in Semiconductor Physics by N. B. Lukyanchikova & B Jones...
The text provides a comprehensive account of current results, addressing problems which have not previously been covered in Western literature, including the excess noise of tunnel-recombination currents and photocurrents in diodes, fluctuation phenomena in a real photoconductor with different recombination centers, and methods of noise spectroscopy of levels in a wide range of materials and devices. This book demonstrates the role and abillities of fluctuation in semiconductor physics, and shows what kinds of physical information are involved in the noise characteristics of semiconductor materials and devices, how this information may be decoded and which advantages are inherent to the noise methods.

fundamental sources of noise Feb 20, 2005
The book investigates the sources of noise in semiconductors, due to a fundamental cause of fluctuations in processes. These include electron-hole recombination, where the free electrons and holes are inherently a stochastic process, based on underlying quantum mechanics.
This idea is also investigated with related effects, like interband transitions. Most standard texts on semiconductors might treat these transitions at some aggregate level, to derive steady state current, for example. But it also means that the basic transitions can, in and of themselves, contribute to the noise fluctuations in that current.
As circuits keep shrinking in size, and currents fall, such phenomena might become more important as limitations to device performance. It is well worth keeping in mind the mesoscopic effects analysed here.
