ELECTRON CONFINED-OPTICAL-PHONON SCATTERING RATES IN SINGLE QUANTUM-WELLS IN AN APPLIED ELECTRIC-FIELD

Abstract:

We calculate the scattering rates for electron-phonon intrasubband and intersubband transitions for confined optical-phonon modes in single quantum wells when an electric field is applied parallel to the growth axis. For the description of the electron-phonon Frölich interaction we use the Huang and Zhu model, based on a lattice-dynamic approach. The scattering rates are found not to differ significantly when an electric field is applied. However, the electronconfined-phonon coupling parity p...
