recombination coefficient

recombination coefficient

[‚rē‚käm·bə′nā·shən ‚kō·i‚fish·ənt]
(electronics)
The rate of recombination of positive ions with electrons or negative ions in a gas, per unit volume, divided by the product of the number of positive ions per unit volume and the number of electrons or negative ions per unit volume.

The effect of variation in layer thickness, temperature, production rate of point-defects, and surface recombination coefficient on annihilation processes at interfaces was studied.
It should be noted that (10) allow introducing interface structure features by means of trap concentration for point-defects, [sup.tot][S.sup.([alpha]- [beta]).sub.j], and the surface recombination coefficient, [[alpha].sub.s].
