Theoretical foundation of transversal light forces in semiconductors

M. Lindberg, R. Binder

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


It is shown that, similar to the case of atomic and molecular systems, there exist transversal light forces on electrons and holes in semiconductors. However, semiconductor-specific aspects yield important differences to atomic light forces.
