Mechanism of Carrier Heating in High Electric Field Electroluminescence Devices
Languages of publication
The mechanism of carrier heating in ZnS-based electroluminescence devices is discussed. We show that carrier acceleration by an applied electric field is at 300 K not a loss-free (ballistic carriers) process. Even for large carrier energies (about 2.5 eV) inelastic scattering on polar optical phonons dominates over elastic scattering on acoustic phonons and ionized impurities.
