Solution: Begin with the definition of average momentum relaxation time: τm ≡ 2 υ xτ m 2 υx (i) Recall the definition of the average, X X ∑ X ( E) f ( E) . = ∑ f ( E) 0 k τm = (ii) (iii) ) E(E , & d% & ! cos % # 0 + k BT C . f0 kdk * 0 0 (iv) 0 k 2 υ xτ m υ = 2 x num denom Consider the numerator first. In 2D, we have: 1 num = "! # f = 2$ 2 k 2 xm0 2$ s ' 2 2 s ! 0 $ 2 ' E & EC * num = # f kdk 2" % ) k BT , 0 ( + 0 Assume parabolic energy bands: 2 ( E # EC ) m* kdk = gV dE " 2 = ! !2 m* so (v) becomes g! num = V 20 "! # $ EC & E % EC ) ( kT + 'B* ECE ­656 ) (v) (vi) (vii) (viii) (ix) (x) s+1 f0 dE Change variables to # E " EC & # E F " EC & !=% ( !
