An improved Monte Carlo algorithm for ionized impurity scattering in bands with warping, non-parabolicity and degeneracy
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
An Efficient Monte Carlo Procedure for Studying Hole Transport in Doped Semiconductors
The present work proposes an efficient technique for calculating the final state of holes after an ionized impurity scattering when the main features of the valence bands in Si and Ge, such as
Hall effect and ionized impurity scattering in Si(1-x)Gex
Using Monte Carlo simulations, we demonstrate that including ionized impurity scattering in models of Si(1−x)Gex is vital in order to predict the correct Hall parameters. Our results show good


Monte Carlo studies of ohmic hole mobility in silicon and germanium: Examination of the optical phonon deformation potential
Monte Carlo methods which have been widely used for studying high field electron and hole transport, so far have not been applied to the complex problem of Ohmic hole transport. We present a
Hole transport in strained Si
In this article Monte Carlo simulation of hole transport in uniaxially strained Si is reported. The results are obtained using an exact analytical diagonalization of a six band k⋅p model. Thus we

Hot-hole lasers in III–V semiconductors
Following the success of p-Ge hot-hole lasers, there is potential for using other semiconductor materials, notably III–V materials such as GaAs and InSb. Previous analysis had suggested that a large
Hole transport theory in pseudomorphic Si1-xGex alloys grown on Si(001) substrates.
The combined effects of strain and alloying are found to produce a monotonic increase in hole mobility and temperature, which at the highest Ge content alloy studied, are comparable to the hole Mobility and temperature in bulk Ge.
