Test of the scaling theory in two dimensions in the presence of valley splitting and intervalley scattering in Si-MOSFETs Academic Article uri icon


  • We show that once the effects of valley splitting and intervalley scattering are incorporated, the two-parameter scaling theory consistently describes the metallic phase in silicon metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors down to the lowest accessible temperatures. The observed large enhancement of the conductance and the effective electron-electron interaction amplitude as the temperature is lowered are explained quantitatively. 2010 The American Physical Society.
