Lead telluride, doping, scattering of charge carriers, mobility


The calculations of the scattering mechanisms of charge carriers in thin films of PbTe:Bi with 1 at. % of bismuth is carried out. The dominant mechanisms of scattering in the investigated samples are determined. The thickness dependence of the ratio msurf/mbulk is considered.
