OMEN Nanowire Lab Learning Materials
By completing the OMEN Nanowire Lab, users will be able to understand a) the operation of nanowire FETs, b) the effect of bandstructure on the carrier transport in nanowire FETs, and c) the effect of geometry of nanowire on the drain current characteristics in nanowire FETs
The specific objectives of the OMEN Nanowire Lab are:
Users who are new to the concept of nanowire FETs and the simulation methods that are useful for understanding their characteristics should consult the following resources:
