Scattering Processes in a Spherical One-Valley Model

  • Karlheinz Seeger
Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)

Abstract

In Chap. 4 we frequently assumed an energy dependence of the momentum relaxation time τ mε r , where r is a constant, for the calculation of the galvanomagnetic, thermoelectric, thermomagnetic, etc., effects. We will now treat the important scattering mechanisms and find the energy dependence of τ m. For those cases where a power law is found, the magnitude of the exponent r will be determined.

Keywords
