Abstract

Using a full band Monte Carlo simulation the electron energy relaxation times of InAs nanowires along the [100] direction are shown to be greater than the energy relaxation time of bulk InAs. The full band structure and scattering rates of the nanowires are calculated using the sp3d5s∗ tight binding method and Fermi's Golden rule respectively. At moderately high electric fields, a runaway effect is also observed in the nanowires and is attributed to the 1D nature of the scattering rates.
