Effect of Magnetic Field on the Momentum Relaxation Rate of Charge Carriers in a Size-Quantized Wire


Article Preview

The effect of a longitudinal magnetic field and the dielectric constants mismatch of a size- quantized wire and surrounding medium on the impurity scattering of charge carriers is considered. The expressions for the momentum relaxation rate are carried out for scattering on charged Coulomb centers located on the wire axis. The dependences of the momentum relaxation rate on the magnetic field induction, dielectric inhomogeneity parameter, and also on the wire radius are obtained.
