Abstract : This compilation of energy band gaps in elemental and binary compound semiconductors and insulators is intended for scientists who are concerned with energy states and electronic properties of solids and for materials engineers who are concerned with the application of solid state science to semiconductor device technology. Binary compounds included in this compilation are those involving elements in Groups IIIA, IVA, VA, VIA, and VIIA of the Periodic Table with elements of atomic numbers 3 (lithium) through 92 (uranium). In addition to the band gap, the compilation gives the method of measurement, the form of the sample, and the temperature at which the measurement was made for each material listed. When available, temperature coefficients of band gaps and indications of whether the material exhibits cathodoluminescence, electroluminescence, laser emission, mechanical luminescence, photoluminescence, or thermoluminescence are also given.
