Description

Scattering is a general physical process where some forms of radiation, such as light, sound, or moving particles, are forced to deviate from a straight trajectory by one or more localized non-uniformities in the medium through which they pass. In conventional use, this also includes deviation of reflected radiation from the angle predicted by the law of reflection. Reflections that undergo scattering are often called diffuse reflections and unscattered reflections are called specular(mirror-like) reflections.

  4. Lecture 4: Scattering in Nanoscale MOSFETs

    08 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    No MOSFET is ever fully ballistic - there is always some carrier scattering. Scattering makes the problem complicated and requires detailed numerical simulations to treat properly. My objective in this lecture is to present a simple, physical picture that describes the essence of the problem and...
