Hole transport in p-Si/SiGe quantum well cascade structures has been analyzed using a rate equation method with thermal balancing (self-consistent energy balance method). The carrier and energy relaxation due to alloy disorder, acoustic and optical phonon scattering are included. The model includes the in-plane k-space anisotropy. The results are compared to those obtained from Monte Carlo simulations and from the basic particle rate equation method.
