Hole scattering with ionized impurities in semiconductors is investigated within the framework of effective mass theory and the Brooks-Herrings formalism. The present work proposes an efficient technique for calculating the final state after a scattering, valid even when the anisotropy, non-parabolicity and degeneracy of the valence band are taken into consideration.

Hole ionized impurity scattering in warped, non-parabolic and degenerate bands
This work presents the ionized impurity scattering rates obtained within the framework of the B-H formalism, for a valence band model containing anisotropy, non-parabolicity and degeneracy, in order
Efficient simulation of the full Coulomb interaction in three dimensions
The continued scaling of MOSFETs into the nano-scale regime requires refined models for carrier transport due to, e.g., unintentional doping in the active channel region which gives rise to threshold
