Electron-phonon interaction in polar solids with application to the tungsten bronzes
Abstract We investigate the interaction between electrons and lattice vibrations in polar solids taking into account their microscopic dielectric properties and constructing in aExpand
Hydrodynamic theory of partially degenerate electron-hole fluids in semiconductors
A quantum hydrodynamic (QHD) theory for high-frequency electron-hole Langmuir and acoustic-like oscillations as well as static charge shielding effects in arbitrarily doped semiconductors isExpand
Measurement and control of electron-phonon interactions in graphene
Despite the weak interaction between electrons and atomic vibrations (phonons) in the one-atom thick crystal of carbon called graphene, the scattering of electrons off phonons limits coherentExpand
Time-resolved carrier dynamics and electron-phonon coupling strength in proximized weak ferromagnet/superconductor nanobilayers bilayers
We present our femtosecond optical pump-probe studies of proximized ferromagnet-superconductor nanobilayers. The weak ferromagnetic nature of a thin NiCu film makes it possible to observe theExpand
Electron–phonon coupling and related transport properties of metals and intermetallic alloys from first principles
Abstract The fundamental scattering mechanisms between electrons and phonons in metals and metallic alloys dictate a wide range of phenomena in their materials’ physics. Using first-principlesExpand
Electron Phonon Collisions, Fermi Dirac Distribution and Bloch's $T^5$ law
In this paper, we model exchange of energy between electrons in solids and the phonon bath as electron-phonon collisions. Phonons are modelled as packets which create a lattice deformation potentialExpand
Many-Body Calculations of Plasmon and Phonon Satellites in Angle-Resolved Photoelectron Spectra Using the Cumulant Expansion Approach
The interaction of electrons with crystal lattice vibrations (phonons) and collective charge-density fluctuations (plasmons) influences profoundly the spectral properties of solids revealed byExpand
The rmal Transport in Semiconductors and Metals from First-Principles
Thermal Transport in Semiconductors and Metals from First-Principles by Ankit Jain Chair: Alan McGaughey The objective of this work is to study thermal transport in bulk, nano-structured, andExpand
Electron and Phonon Transport
This chapter introduces electronic band theory after a brief discussion of electronic structures in atoms, binding in crystals, and crystal lattices. The phonon dispersion relations are presentedExpand
Optical characteristics of finite temperature quantum electron gas
In this paper we study the propagation of elliptically polarized transverse electromagnetic waves in a quasineutral plasma with arbitrary degenerate electron fluid ranging from classical dilute toExpand
