Abstract : A theoretical and computational analysis of the quantum dynamics of charge carriers in presence of electron-phonon interaction based on the Wigner function is here applied to the study of transport in mesoscopic systems. Numerical applications are shown for (a) a wave packet scattering with phonons while crossing a potential profile and (b) electrons scattering with phonons in a finite device with open boundary conditions.
