Abstract

A Monte Carlo simulation code has been developed to study the effect of phonon perturbations in hot-electron transport in semiconductors. The modifications of carrier drift velocity and mean energy induced by the perturbed acoustic-phonon distribution are studied at low temperatures in p-Ge. Under appropriate conditions, current saturation is obtained as a result of the steady-state phonon perturbation. The Monte Carlo analysis has been complemented and compared with an analytical approach based on a heated and displaced Maxwellian distribution for the electron gas.
