Correlated Diffusion Mobility



The 2D-correlated diffusion mobility model that provides an important facility to alter the amount of correlation between motion components is analyzed deriving its analytical model. We have also described how different mobility models can be derived by adjusting the five mobility parameters of the CDM .
