Conductivity of thin metal slabs with rough surfaces
- 27 Downloads
The electrical conductivity of a slab whose thickness is small compared to the free electron path is calculated. A boundary condition proposed previously by the author is used. This condition describes the electron scattering on a rough surface. The result differs from the well-known Dingle formula, since relaxation in the volume and on the surface is correlated for the nearly tangentially incident electrons and the specularity coefficient depends on the angle between the electron momentum and the surface.
