Physics-based modeling of hole mobilities in ultra-thin germanium layers is calculated with self-consistent Schrodinger-Poisson solver and Kubo- Greenwood formula. Quantum confinement is taken into account for heavy, light and split-off hole band in a double-gate germanium MOSFET structure. Distribution of hole wave function is examined along with energy levels. Acoustic and optical phonon scattering is taken into consideration in the calculation of hole momentum relaxation time. The observed reduction of mobility in thinner layers is explained by examining the influence of fieldinduced and geometry-induced confinement. Contributions from different hole bands are investigated by calculating band population and respective band mobilities.
