High-field charge transport and noise in p-Si from first principles

  title={High-field charge transport and noise in p-Si from first principles},
  author={David Catherall and Austin J. Minnich},
The parameter-free computation of charge transport properties of semiconductors is now routine owing to advances in the ab-initio description of the electron-phonon interaction. Many studies focus on the low-field regime in which the carrier temperature equals the lattice temperature and the current power spectral density (PSD) is proportional to the mobility. The calculation of high-field transport and noise properties offers a stricter test of the theory as these relations no longer hold, yet…

Two-phonon scattering in non-polar semiconductors: a first-principles study of warm electron transport in Si

The ab-initio theory of charge transport in semiconductors typically employs the lowest-order perturbation theory in which electrons interact with one phonon (1ph). This theory is accepted to be



High-field transport and hot electron noise in GaAs from first principles: role of two-phonon scattering

High-field charge transport in semiconductors is of fundamental interest and practical importance. While the ab initio treatment of low-field transport is well-developed, the treatment of high-field
