Abstract

In this article the electron mobility’s in ZnO and SiC Semiconductors are calculated by solving Boltzmann equation using iteration model. The electron mobility is calculated as a function of temperature and ionized impurity in the ranges of 100k to 600k and 1016to 1018cm-3. The theoretical maximum motilities in ZnO, SiC at 300k are about275 and 7.35 cm2.v-1s-1. We compare the results with experimental data and find reasonable correlation. Keywords-: Electron mobility; ZnO and SiC; Iteration Model. distribution function under the action of a steady electric field. Here we have adopted the iterative technique for solving the Boltzmann transport equation. Under the action of steady field, the Boltzmann equation for the distribution function can be written as (1) Where represents the change f distribution

function due to the electron scattering. In the steadystate and under application of uniform electric field the Boltzmann equation can be written as (2) Consider electrons in an isotropic, nonparabolic conduction band whose equilibrium Fermi distribution function is f0 (k) in the absence of electric field. Note the equilibrium distribution f0 (k) is isotropic in k space but is perturbed when an electric field is applied. If the electric field is small, we can treat the change from the equilibrium distribution function as a perturbation which is first order in the electric field. The distribution in the presence of a sufficiently small field can be written quite generally as (3) Whereθ is the angle between k and F and g(k) is an isotropic function of k, which is proportional to the magnitude of the electric field f(k) satisfies the Boltzmann equation 2 and it follows that :

INTRODUCTION

Sic has a wide band gap of 3.2 eV and thus it is an applied semiconductors in the fabrication of electronic and photo electronic devices such as lasers and detectors which work in the range of Infrared spectrum . It is also useful in construction of transistors. There has been a great interest in the study of charge carrier transport of ZnO due to the wide band gap of 3.43 eV. Therefore Zink Oxide has become one of the most applied semiconductors in Light Emitting Diode (LED), Liquid crystal Detector (LCD) and Solar cells. The low -field electron mobility is one of the most important parameters that determine the performance of the field-effect transistor. The purpose of the present paper is to calculate electron mobility for various temperatures and ionized -impurity concentrations. The formulation itself applies only to the center of Γ valley conduction band. We have also considered band non-parabolicity and screening effects of free carriers on the scattering probabilities. All the relevant scattering mechanisms, including polar optic phonons, deformation potential, piezoelectric, acoustic phonons and ionized impurity Scattering The Boltzmann equation is solved iteratively for our purpose, jointly incorporating the effects of all the scattering mechanisms. This paper is organized as follows : Details of the iterative model of Boltzmann equation is presented in section ΙΙ and the results of iterative calculations carried out on ZnO and SiC structures are interpreted in section ΙΙΙ .

MODEL DETAILS

(4) In general there will be both elastic and inelastic scattering proses. For example impurity scattering is elastic and acoustic and piezoelectric scattering are elastic to a good approximation at room temperature. However, polar and nonpolar optical phonon scattering are inelastic. Labeling the elastic and inelastic scattering rates with subscripts el and inlet respectively and recognizing that , for any process itseli(k,k’)=seli(k' ,k') equation 4 can be written as

To calculate mobility, we have to solve Boltzmann equation to get the modified probability

Note the first term in the denominator is simply the momentum relaxation rate for elastic scattering , equation 5 may be solved iteratively by the relation

(6) Where is the perturbation to the distribution function after the nth iteration. it is interesting to note that if the initial distribution is chosen to be the equilibrium distribution, for which is equal to zero, we get the relaxation time approximation result after the first iteration. We have found that convergence can normally be achieved after only a few iterations for small electric fields. Once has be evaluated to the required accuracy, it is possible to calculate quantities such as the drift mobility which is given in terms of spherical coordinates by (7)

fig 2. Changes the electron mobility function in terms of Temperature in bulk SiC at the electron concentration 1016cm-3 The electrons mobility decrease quickly by temperature increasing from 100 to 600k in bulk ZnO and SiC at the electron concentration of 1016(cm-3).because temperature increasing causes increase of phonons energy too.so it causes a strong interaction between electrons and these phonons that its result is increase of electrons scattering rate and finally decrease of electrons mobility . By comparing two figures 1 and 2 we can see that the electron mobility of ZnO is more than SiC. because increasing effective mass causes the decrease of acceleration and the time in which electrons are under the influence of impurity centers increase and as a result scattering would increase and mobility will decrease. Figures 3 and 4 show changes the electron mobility function in terms of electron concentration in bulks ZnO and SiC at temperature of 300k. Figures 3 and 4 show that in both semiconductors ZnO and SiC mobility decrease by electrons
