Recently discovered modulations of Shubnikov–de Haas oscillations in microwave-irradiated two-dimensional electron systems are shown to arise from electron heating induced by the radiation. The electron temperature, obtained by balancing the energy absorption from the microwave field and the energy dissipation to the lattice through realistic electron-phonon couplings, exhibits resonance. The modulation of the Shubnikov–de Haas oscillation and the suppression of magnetoresistance are demonstrated together with microwave-induced resistance oscillation, in agreement with experimental findings.

    We calculate the electrical resistivity due to electron-phonon scattering for a model of A[sub 3]C[sub 60] (A = K, Rb), using an essentially exact quantum Monte-Carlo method. In agreement with experiment, we obtain a very large metallic resistivity at large temperatures T. This illustrates that...

    Effects of electron-phonon interaction on optical phonons are studied in carbon nanotubes. In metallic nanotubes, the gap due to an Aharonov-Bohm magnetic flux oriented in the tube axis causes a singular behavior in the broadening. In particular, the broadening appears in the transverse mode and...

    The two-site Holstein model with different site energies, the simplest model to mimic disorder, is analytically studied by a diagonalization method of coherent states. The solutions obtained in our work are exact, and agree well with those derived by a modified Lang-Firsov (MLF) method in the...

    A model for phonon heat conduction in a molecular nanowire is developed. The calculation takes into account modification of the acoustic phonon dispersion relation due to the electron-phonon interaction. The results obtained are compared with models based upon a simpler, Callaway formula.

    Neither Eliashberg equations nor the BCS one are predictive to the critical temperature, Tc, of a superconductor. A certain amount of phenomenological equations have been constructed with the aim of predicting the experimental values found for Tc. They preserve the form of the BCS-Tc equation...
