- Band-structure calculation and optimization:
- Carrier velocity and maximum attainablecurrent IBL
- Scattering rates, hence realcurrent ION and BR=(ION/IBL)

- Link the properties and advantages of:

Mobility in Long MOSFETs (Uniform transport)

ION in nano-MOSFETs

(far from equilibr. transport)

- Provide sound interpretation to characterization
