Seminar: Hydrodynamic description of electron transport in high mobility semiconductors

anton-andreevSkoltech Center of Photonics & Quantum Materials is pleased to invite you to the seminar “Hydrodynamic description of electron transport in high mobility semiconductors”

Speaker: Prof. Anton Andreev, University of Washington, Seattle, USA

I will argue that electron transport in high mobility semiconductors at moderately low temperatures may be described using a hydrodynamic approach. The hydrodynamic flow that arises in this case is markedly different from the Stokes flow. The passage of electric current induces temperature gradient that are linear in the current. As a result, the resistivity of the system is determined not only by the viscosity of the system but also by its thermal conductivity.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the seminar.
