(p.135) 14 Scattering Rate in a Quantum Well
Hybrid Phonons in Nanostructures

B. K. Ridley

Oxford University Press

Combining simplicity and clarity, this chapter focuses on a quantum well structure in which a polar material is sandwiched between identical polar layers that act as barriers to electrons. The sandwiched layer is the quantum well in which electrons are completely confined in the space -L/2 ≥ zL/2. The chapter looks at: the scattering potential; scattering rate within the ground state; form factor; barrier modes; simple models; and the need for numerical evaluation.

Keywords:   scattering rate, quantum well, numerical evaluation, barrier modes, form factor
