Effect of Surface Roughness on Quantum Carrier Transport in Ultrathin Films

Effect of Surface Roughness on Quantum Carrier Transport in Ultrathin Films A theoretical study is reported of the carrier transport in an ultrathin metal film and a quantum-well layer subject to scattering by surface irregularities. A consistent quantum-mechanical approach to the problem is developed. Power-law approximations with different exponents are obtained to the conductivity–thickness relationship.

Abstract

A theoretical study is reported of the carrier transport in an ultrathin metal film and a quantum-well layer subject to scattering by surface irregularities. A consistent quantum-mechanical approach to the problem is developed. Power-law approximations with different exponents are obtained to the conductivity–thickness relationship. The results are compared with previously published experimental data.
