ECE 656 Lecture 26: Mobility in 3D, 2D, and 1D
13 Nov 2009  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
The goal in this lecture is to examine one scattering
mechanism (ADP scattering) in 3D, 2D, and 1D to see
how the scattering rate changes with dimensionality. Then
we’ll compare mobilities...
