The Monte Carlo method is used to simulate electron transport for electric field strength up to 500 kV/cm in GaxIn1-xN for composition x range from 0.0 to 1.0. Calculations of the electron steady-state drift velocity, average energy and valley occupancy are examined at a temperature of 300 K. Scattering mechanisms considered in the simulations are ionized impurity, polar optical phonon, acoustic phonon, non-polar optical phonon, intervalley, dislocation and alloy scatterings. Effects of the alloy scatterings on the drift velocity are examined. (c) 2007 WILEY-VCH Vertag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
