Paper Title:
Carrier-Phonon Scattering Rate and Charge Transport in Spherical and TMV Nanometric Viruses
  Abstract

The present paper presents the carrier-acoustic phonon scattering rate and charge transport in spherical and TMV viruses. We demonstrate theoretically that the absorption rate changes according to the phonon energy while emission of phonon is limited by the both electron and hole energy. The obtained conductivity for spherical and TMV viruses suggest that the TMV virus is more conducting and therefore may be a good candidate for the connector or wire to be used in the nano- and molecular- electronics . The value of resistance obtained for TMV virus is lower than the resistance of DNA.
