Abstract. The change in mobility with increasing the temperature which may be due to the inclusion of gLO-phonon energy of 720K, is presented. In orientation of the uniaxial pressure X//[110]//J, g-transitions are attached in the directions [100] and [010]. The f-transitions are not completely removed from valleys located in the plane (100). In this case, there is no change in the slope of the dependence log ρ vs. log T for the temperature range 300 to 450 K. So, no contribution of g-transitions to intervalley scattering occurs, while the observed is tha decisive role of f–transitions to this scattering.

Keywords: silicon, electron mobility, uniaxial strain, g-transitions, f-transitions, tenso-resistive effect.
