Models for Scattering and Vertical Transport in Microstructures and Superlattices

  • D. C. Herbert
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 189)


Novel techniques for solving hot carrier transport problems are presented. These techniques are combined with calculations of scattering rates in superlattices to discuss vertical transport.
