A scattering operator modeling the interaction of electrons with phonons of given constant energy in semiconductors is analyzed by means of an expansion in terms of spherical harmonics. An application is the derivation of the drift-diffusion limit of the corresponding Boltzmann equation for the transport of electrons in a semiconductor crystal.
