Notes on Scattering and Mobility in 1D, 2D, and 3D

This resource belongs to the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative group.
Derivation of the phonon-limited mobility is reviewed for electrons in bulk (3D) or
quantum confined (2D and 1D) semiconductor structures. Analytical estimates are made
that show the mobility in quantum confined structures is, in general, lower or no higher
than in non-confined ones.
