Electronic Properties of Semiconductors


The quasi-mobility function of charge carriers with a specified energy for describing their dynamics using the kinetic equation is studied in the important case of two-term isotropic approximation. In the stationary case, the quasi-mobility function is independent of the source function of charge carriers and makes it possible to calculate the integral mobility. The correlation between the quasi-mobility and parameters of the system is analyzed. It is proved that this characteristic does not generally describe the contribution of charge carriers with a specified energy to the integral mobility. In the case of almost elastic scattering, the quasi-mobility, as is known, can have a clear physical meaning; however, in the case of the scattering of charge carriers at acoustic phonons in a solid, this quasi-mobility interpretation is found to be incorrect due to the specific features of the collision integral and the form of the quasi-mobility function.
