Abstract

In this work charge carriers mobility in diamond, calculated by two means – by kinetic equation method and by Monte Carlo method – is analyzed. Temperature of diamond crystal less than 300 K and low concentration of impurities are considered, therefore carriers are scattered preliminary by acoustic phonons. Electron-phonon interaction is taken in deformation potential approximation. Phonon emission and adsorption rates are calculated and Monte-Carlo method is used to obtain carriers mobility. The mobility is compared with that obtained by kinetic equation method in our previous work. The results are important for the treatment of electrical experiments in pure monocrystalline diamonds.
