Paper Abstract

We present numerical results for charge-carrier relaxation processes by carrier-carrier scattering in various semiconductor structures. Common to all examples is the aspect of anisotropy. Our results are based on a generalized quantum Boltzmann equation. Specifically, we solve the Kadanoff-Bayn equations for the relevant two-time Green's function. The systems under consideration are bulk GaAs with anisotropically photo-excited electrons and hexagonal CdS.
