Term (Index) Definition
scattering  process responsible for electron in a certain state, defined by its crystal momentum, suddenly moving into a different state; result of interactions with host atoms in the lattice, dopant atoms, as well defects; fundamental effect defining electron transport in semiconductor; in a way scattering can be seen as a "collision" during which species do not come to physical contact.
mobility  important parameter defining transport of free charge carriers in semiconductor, and hence, semiconductor's conductivity; proportionality factor between semiconductor conductivity and concentration of charge carriers; different for different semiconductors due to the difference in the effective nass of charge carriers in different semiconductors; higher for electrons than holes due to lower effective mass.
