Abstract

In this presentation, we report the calculated results on hot electron relaxation through inter- and intra-subband scatterings with LO phonons in quantum well structures. The scattering rates were calculated for electrons excited both in the gamma valley and L valleys. The types of optical phonons adapted in our model are determined based on the dielectric continuum model. We have also studied the dependence of the scatterings on the structure parameters of the quantum well.
