    Abstract

    In the cited work (ibid. , vol. 72, no. 9, pp. 1222-1224, 1984) it is argued that the results are derived assuming the validity of an earlier analysis by M. S. Shur and L. F. Eastman (1979). The commenters maintain that a self-consistent device analysis which incorporates a description of transient transport effects may be performed using an energy and momentum conserving formulation based on moments of the Boltzmann transport equation or using a Monte Carlo implementation of a scattering-process-level transport kernel. They argue that it is not appropriate to use the simple energy and momentum balance model for device analysis, because this formulation neglects ensemble ('diffusion-like') effects.
