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.

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

    03 Nov 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitri Nikonov, Md. Sayed Hasan, George Bourianoff

    Derivation of the phonon-limited mobility is reviewed for electrons in bulk (3D) orquantum confined (2D and 1D) semiconductor structures. Analytical estimates are madethat show the mobility in quantum confined structures is, in general, lower or no higherthan in non-confined ones.
