A new mobility model dependent upon electron concentration is presented for studying the screening effect on ionized impurity scattering. By coupling this model with the drift-diffusion and Hartree models, the effects of self-consistent and quasi-equilibrium screening on carrier transport in heavily doped systems are revealed for first time. The transport mechanism is found to be dominated by the electron-concentration-dependent mobility, and transconductance is shown to be determined by effective mobility and changes from degraded to enhanced characteristics with electron concentration modulation.
