Notes on the Ballistic MOSFET
08 Oct 2005   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
When analyzing semiconductor devices, the traditional approach is to assume that carriers scatter frequently from ionized impurities, phonons, surface roughness, etc. so that the average distance between scattering events (the socalled meanfreepath, λ) is much shorter than the device. When...

Bandstructure in Nanoelectronics
01 Nov 2005   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
