Schindlmayr, A. (1997) Excitons with anisotropic effective mass. European Journal of Physics. pp. 374-376. ISSN 1361-6404
We present a simple analytic scheme for calculating the binding energy of excitons in semiconductors that takes full account of the existing anisotropy in the effective mass, as a complement to the qualitative treatment in most textbooks. Results obtained for excitons in gallium nitride form the basis for a discussion of the accuracy of this approach.
