SiGe is an important material for high mobility p-type transistors. In this Letter, the role of alloy and phonon scattering on the total hole mobility in SiGe nanowires is studied. At low carrier density, alloy scattering is still found to be relevant leading to an ‘U’ shaped mobility curve as a function of Ge concentration.
