Basic Electron Transport
- 1.6k Downloads
This chapter will take you through a simple introduction to transport theory covering the Boltzmann equation, the Fuchs—Sondheimer model for thin films, the normal magnetoresistance and quantum interference effects in metals with strong electron scattering. At the end of the chapter we will also introduce you to a number of the basic techniques involved in electron transport measurements. All of this is by way of introduction to basic transport properties common to all metals. In later chapters these ideas will be developed and applied to systems in which spin dependent transport is important.
