Effect of a transverse applied electric field on electron drift velocity in a GaAs quantum wire: A Monte Carlo simulation

Effect of a transverse applied electric field on electron drift velocity in a GaAs quantum wire:... A Monte Carlo simulation is run to study the electron transport in a thin undoped GaAs quantum wire under the influence of a transverse applied electric field. Phonon and surface-roughness scattering are included. Electron drift velocity is investigated as a function of roughness amplitude at a temperature of 77 or 300 K and a longitudinal electric field of 104 or 105 V/m.

Abstract

A Monte Carlo simulation is run to study the electron transport in a thin undoped GaAs quantum wire under the influence of a transverse applied electric field. Phonon and surface-roughness scattering are included. Electron drift velocity is investigated as a function of roughness amplitude at a temperature of 77 or 300 K and a longitudinal electric field of 104 or 105 V/m. A transverse applied field is shown to provide a means of controlling drift velocity, affecting the scattering rate.
