What the deference between L,X and gamma in Ec valley ?


ZnO Material Properties

The L, X, and gamma valleys are the three valleys in the conduction band of the semiconductor material. Depending on the curvature of the E-k curve at each valley, electrons will have different values for effective mass. The valley with the smallest bandgap will dictate the electrical transport of the semiconductor.
