Notes on Scattering and Mobility in 1D, 2D, and 3D
06 Nov 2009  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dmitri Nikonov, Md. Sayed Hasan, George Bourianoff
Derivation of the phononlimited 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...

From 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasibound states and if in the limit we have infinite periodic potential it leads to formation of...
