The motion of an ion in an electron gas

Abstract:

We give a semi-classical treatment of the problem of electrical conduction around a charged impurity ion in a metal. As the electrons flow past the ion they are scattered by its screened Coulomb potential and so introduce a velocity dependent distribution of charge. This charge distribution leads, through the Poisson equation, to a modification of the potential surrounding the ion through which the electrons are initially scattered; we look for a self-consistent or simultaneous solution t...
