Relaxation of Highly Non Equilibrium Charge Carriers in Crystals by Low-Energy Electron Influence

Abstract:

Article Preview

The cascade process describing the energy loss and relaxation or multiplication of highly non-equilibrium secondary electrons and holes in crystalline platinum irradiated by lowenergy electrons is studied. The pair-creation scattering rates are evaluated in the framework of the statistical model taking into account the electron band structure of platinum. Kinetic equations for the excited electron and hole energy distributions are solved numerically in the isotropic scattering approximation for some primary (excitation) energies Ep which do not exceed the plasma energy.
