Field Effect Transistor (FET) The Field-Effect Transistor (FET) is a transistor that uses an electric field to control the conductivity of a channel in a semiconductor material.A generic FET structureShowed in figure.Department of Applied Physics, Electronics & Communication Engg., University of Dhaka 6
  • 7. Keyword: Ballistic Transport Ballistic Transport is the transport of electrons in a medium with negligible electrical resistivity due to scattering. Without scattering, electrons simply obey Newtons second law of motion at non-relativistic speeds. Simply, Ballistic Transport is the transport of electrons in a channel considering no impurity or scatterer in the region. Ballistic Transport can be considered when mean free path of an electron is greater than channel length. i. e., λ >> LDepartment of Applied Physics, Electronics & Communication Engg., University of Dhaka 7
