ABSTRACT
The temperature dependences of electron mobility and peak velocity in compensated GaAs have been calculated by using a Monte Carlo technique. It is found that both mobility and peak velocity are substantially reduced and less temperature dependent in compensated material because of an increased impurity scattering.
