We present a theory of deformation potential carrier scattering of two-dimensional electron gases from the strain fields surrounding edge dislocations. The scattering rate is evaluated in closed form without any fitting parameters. The result is directed towards understanding mobility limiting scattering mechanisms for two-dimensional electron gases at AlGaN/GaN heterointerfaces.

    The nonlocal resistance of a two-dimensional electron gas in a periodic lattice of antidots is investigated. Anomalous growth of this resistance is observed when 2Rc≊d (Rc is the Larmor radius). This growth is caused by the appearance of runaway trajectories, skipping along the antidots...

    We study the effects of the shape of the cross section of a three-dimensional quantum wire on electron scattering from a single point defect in the wire. The confinement of electrons is modeled by both hard- and soft-wall potentials. We find that as the degree of anisotropy of the cross section...
