Quantum Contributions and Violations of the Classical Law of Mass Action

Abstract

The law of mass action refers to the product of concentration of reactants, which for a particular material is a function only of temperature. For non-degenerate semiconductors the law of mass action is represented by the product NP=NCNV exp- EG/KBT. Through solutions to the quantum Liouville equation, it is determined that the law of mass action is generally invalid.
