  • Electron transport equation, semiconductors, heat generation, steady state distribution, Monte Carlo algorithm




The paper studies the kinetic equation for electron transport in semiconductors. New formulas for the heat generation rate are derived by analyzing the basic scattering mechanisms. In addition, properties of the steady state distribution are discussed and possible extensions of the deviational particle Monte Carlo method to the area of electron transport are proposed.
