#365 Charge carriers mobility

Mobility of electrons and holes is a key material parameter which pre-determines performance of any given semiconductor material in high-speed device applications. Sometimes the fact that the electron mobility is a material specific parameter, and hence, is different in different semiconductors does not seem to be fully recognized.


Free electrons and holes carrying an electric charge and moving in semiconductor material are subject to severe scattering resulting from collisions and electrostatic interactions with host and dopant atoms in the lattice. All these interactions come down to the material specific adjustments of the charge carriers movement in semiconductors which are collectively expressed by a single material parameter µ known as mobility (unit [cm2/Vs]) of electrons, µn, and mobility of holes, µp, in semiconductors. Depending on the composition of material and its crystal structure electron mobility may vary by orders of magnitude.  For instance, electron mobility at room temperature in silicon, Si, is 1500 cm2/Vs while in indium antimonide, InSb, about 80000 cm2/Vs.

Good post. I be taught something tougher on totally differen
t blogs everyday. It can always be stimulating to learn cont
ent from other writers and follow slightly something from th
eir store. I? want to make use of some with the content on m
y weblog whether or not you don? mind. Natually I?l provide
you with a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

I must express my love for your generosity for people that s
hould have help on this one subject. Your special commitment
to getting the message around turned out to be extremely be
neficial and has usually encouraged employees just like me t
o reach their dreams. The interesting help and advice can me
an a lot a person like me and even more to my office colleag
ues. Many thanks; from everyone of us.

You made some first rate factors there. I looked on the inte
rnet for the difficulty and found most people will go along
with along with your website.
