We have continued our work on impact ionization including collisional broadening and the intra-collisional field effect. We have started to investigate the possibility of Monte Carlo simulations that use the pseudopotential form-factors as sole input to compute both band structure and phonon scattering rate and we have obtained preliminary results. With regard to quantum transport, we have continued our work on phonon scattering in mesoscopic systems and we have obtained first numerical results on the electron-electron interaction in simple nanostructures.
