On the Electronic Transport in Polar Solids

Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 17)


An electron (or hole) moving through a polar crystal polarizes its neighbourhood (see fig.1). This polarization modifies the physical properties of the electron. The electron together with the self induced polarization has been considered as one entity and was called a polaron.
