Advanced Physics of Electron Transport in Semiconductors and by Massimo V. Fischetti,William G. Vandenberghe

By Massimo V. Fischetti,William G. Vandenberghe

This textbook is aimed toward second-year graduate scholars in Physics, electric Engineer­ing, or fabrics technological know-how. It provides a rigorous creation to digital delivery in solids, specially on the nanometer scale.

Understanding digital shipping in solids calls for a few easy wisdom of Ham­iltonian Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Condensed topic thought, and Statistical Mechanics. as a result, this ebook discusses these sub-topics that are required to accommodate digital delivery in a unmarried, self-contained direction. this can be necessary for college kids who intend to paintings in academia or the nano/ micro-electronics industry.

Further issues coated comprise: the speculation of strength bands in crystals, of moment quan­tization and simple excitations in solids, of the dielectric homes of semicon­ductors with an emphasis on dielectric screening and paired interfacial modes, of electron scattering with phonons, plasmons, electrons and photons, of the derivation of delivery equations in semiconductors and semiconductor nanostructures just a little on the quantum point, yet typically on the semi-classical point. The textual content offers examples proper to present examine, therefore not just approximately Si, but additionally approximately III-V compound semiconductors, nanowires, graphene and graphene nanoribbons. specifically, the textual content supplies significant emphasis to plane-wave tools utilized to the digital constitution of solids, either DFT and empirical pseudopotentials, regularly paying cognizance to their results on digital delivery and its numerical therapy. The middle of the textual content is digital shipping, with considerable discussions of the delivery equations derived either within the quantum photo (the Liouville-von Neumann equation) and semi-classically (the Boltzmann delivery equation, BTE). a sophisticated bankruptcy, bankruptcy 18, is precisely with regards to the ‘tricky’ transition from the time-reversible Liouville-von Neumann equation to the time-irreversible Green’s features, to the density-matrix formalism and, classically, to the Boltzmann delivery equation. eventually, a number of tools for fixing the BTE are additionally reviewed, together with the tactic of moments, iterative equipment, direct matrix inversion, mobile Automata and Monte Carlo. 4 appendices entire the text.
