Lecture 6: An Introduction to Scattering

By Mark Lundstrom

Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN

Published on

Abstract

In Lectures 1-5, scattering is described by a mean-free-path (mfp) for backscattering. In this lecture, we show how the mfp is related to the time between scattering events and briefly discuss how the scattering time is related to underlying physical processes.

Outline:

  1. Introduction
  2. Physics of carrier scattering
  3. Transmission and MFP
  4. MFP and scattering
  5. Discussion
  6. Summary
