The theory of non-integer dimensionality is studied with the aim of testing its validity in real situations. The study is accomplished through rederivation of Stillinger's non-integer D-space formalism. The theory is then applied to both impurities and excitons in bulk semiconductors. Dimensional behavior in both the valence and conduction bands is studied and the theory is found to be very self-consistent. The theory is used to derive a new way of characterizing deep impurity levels.
