Transport properties of multi-subband quasi-one dimensional (1-D) structures are investigated with Monte-Carlo simulation. The confinement conditions are varied to produce Resonant Inter-Subband (polar) Optic Phonon Scattering (RISOPS) during the transport process. The spatial degeneracy which occurs when the y- and z-energy levels overlap results in noticeable features in the subband carrier concentrations and the transport parameters. RISOPS is similar to Magneto-phonon effects but exhibits novel features which unlike longitudinal Magneto-tranport, occur in absence of azimuthal symmetry.
