This thesis is concerned with finite semi fields. The objective of this thesis is to give a full description of Knuth orbits of known commutative semi fields. We also describe planar functions corresponding to commutative semi fields. Results are presented by tables. Nuclei of semi fields are studied. Finally we consider applications of semi fields, planar functions and spreads to construction of mutually unbiased bases.
