Abstract:We present an empirical model for the electron energy relaxation time. It is based on Monte-Carlo simulation results and is applicable to all relevant diamond and zinc-blende structure semiconductors. The energy relaxation times are expressed as functions of the carrier and lattice temperatures, and in the case of semiconductor alloys, of the material composition.
