As given in Eq. (2) and Table 1, our analytical expression for the static dielectric constant, \varepsilon\left(r_{d\left(a\right)}\right), given in the n(p)-type InAs crystal, expressed as a function of the donor (acceptor) radius, r_{d\left(a\right)}, and determined from an effective Bohr model, decreases with increasing r_{d\left(a\right)}. It strongly affects the critical d(a)-density in the metal-insulator transition (MIT) at the temperature T (=0K), N_{CDn(CDp)}(r_{d(a)}), determined in Eq. (3), and all the expressions for optical coefficients, determined in Equations (24, 25, 28, 29) for the n(p)-type heavily (lightly) doped InAs semiconductors at any T. In particular, in the P-InAs system at T=0K, Table 3c shows that our obtained results for those optical coefficients are found to be more accurate than the corresponding ones, obtained from the FB-PM [11], suggesting that the present model, used here to study the optical properties of the n(p)-type heavily (lightly) doped InSb -crystal at any T, could be a good improved FB-PM.
