Charge Transport in Semiconductors

Part of the Computational Microelectronics book series (COMPUTATIONAL)

Abstract

Electrons in a perfect crystal1 can be described in terms of Bloch states, whose wave functions can be written as
$$ {\Psi_{{nk}}}(r) = {u_{{nk}}}(r){e^{{ik \cdot r}}} $$
(2.1.1)
where n is a band index, ħ k is the quasi momentum of the electron, and u nk (r) is a function of the space coordinate r with the periodicity of the crystal.

Keywords

Charge Transport Optical Phonon Acoustic Phonon Acoustic Scattering Polar Optical Phonon 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
