Abstract:

Our research on electron-phonon and phonon-phonon processes in low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures has been focused on the effects of a surfaces and interfaces on the electron energy momentum relaxation rates due to acoustic phonon emission, new specific mechanism of electron interaction with acoustic phonons in semiconductor heterostructures, and phonon-induced processes of charge can loosing phase coherence in heterostructures. Our research provides the necessary basis for the control of 1 dissipation and for the design of nanodevices with electron-phonon relaxation and dephasing rates required specific applications. .
