ABSTRACT
The mobility and carrier density of two-dimensional hole systems formed at the interface of GaAs-Ga1-xAlxAs heterojunctions have been measured in the temperature range 1.9–100 K. The mobility increased monotonically with decreasing temperature, and in one sample reached 2.35×105 cm2 V-1 s-1, the highest value reported for holes. Optical phonon scattering (for T>40 K) and acoustic phonon scattering (for 15 K≤T≤40 K) are the mechanisms limiting the mobility down to low temperature, where Coulomb scattering dominates (for T<15 K). An observed linear increase of the inverse mobility with temperature cannot be explained quantitatively with a theory that was able to account for a similar behavior found in two-dimensional electrons.
