Paper Abstract

Quantum Transport Equations for Bloch electrons interacting with randomly distributed impurities in the presence of a homogeneous electric field of arbitrary strength and time dependence are derived. The equations account for all possible quantum effects to lowest nonzero order in the scattering strength, including intra and interband scattering, interband Zener tunneling and non-linear transient transport, and contain effects previously not anticipated, such as coherent impurity scattering, and field and time dependent scattering matrix elements.
