Shows absolute current-voltage characteristics. Whats the area?

Hi

The latest version of the tool outputs absolute current-voltage curve, rather than earlier current density-voltage curve. What is the area that ie being used to calculate absolute current? Or how can I get current density (A/cm2) from the current.

Please help

    Hi,

    The unit should be A/um2. The tool will soon be updated to reflect this. Thank you for pointing out this error.

    Hi,

    I believe the unit of the current is incorrect. The current is normalized by the area and the unit is (A/cm^2).

    Thank you.

      If thats the case, it is giving unusually low current densities. I am simulating a single barrier RTD with a very thin barrier width. Is the current density units (MA/cm2)??
