Semiclassical theory of shot noise in mesoscopic conductors


A semiclassical theory is developed for time-dependent current fluctuations in mesoscopic conductors. The theory is based on the Boltzmann-Langevin equation for a degenerate electron gas. The low-frequency shot-noise power is related to classical transmission probabilities at the Fermi level. For a disordered conductor with impurity scattering, it is shown… (More)
