Abstract

A review is presented by the progress that has been made in understanding the electronic density of states in amorphous semiconductors. Many different approaches have been used, including calculations based on periodic structures but with the strict requirement of long range order relaxed, calculations based on clusters, simple models that are tractable, and band structure calculations for various polymorphs with large unit cells. From this work it is becoming clear that the short range structure determines many of the gross features in the density of states.
