Abstract:

The theory of kinetic phenomena in semiconductors with charged ions is generalized to the case of non-uniform ion concentration. The free-path length of current carriers with respect to thermal vibrations and other scattering mechanisms, excluding charged-ion scattering, is assumed to be much smaller than the Debye screening radius in a semiconductor. The non-uniform charged ion concentration in the general case makes an anisotropic contribution to tensors describing kinetic phenomena in semiconductors. This effect may be considerably greater in value than the effect obtained for the case of non-uniform charged-ion concentration in semiconductors. Author
