Monte carlo solution to the problem of high-field electron heating in SiO2

View publication

Abstract

By use of a Monte Carlo technique, it is shown that high-field electron transport in the SiO2 conduction band is controlled by LO-phonon scattering for fields below 3 × 106 V/cm and by nonpolar scattering with acoustic phonons at higher fields. This accounts for recent experimental results indicating that an energy-loss mechanism, previously neglected, is effective at high fields. © 1984 The American Physical Society.
