I expect it to be $U = \Sigma_k \frac{\hbar^2 k^2}{2 m^*}f(k)$ where f(k) is the fermi function. When no voltage is applied $U_0 = \Sigma_k \frac{\hbar^2 k^2}{2 m^*}f_0(k)$ (I am just confused what the fermi-level should be in the case when voltage is applied and I want to do a full integral including temperature dependence) My question basically is, what is the expression for $f(k)$ and $f_0(k)$. Would it be different in the ballistic and diffusive regime? And how do I extend this for d-dimensional semiconductor?
