Physics and Simulation of Nanoscale Electronic and Thermoelectric Devices
28 Jun 2013 | Papers | Contributor(s): raseong kim
For the past few decades, transistors have been continuously scaled. Dimensions are now at the nanoscale, and device performance has dramatically improved. Nanotechnology is also achieving breakthroughs in thermoelectrics, which have suffered from low efficiencies for decades. As the device scale enters the nanometer range and novel device structures are introduced, it becomes essential to revisit the device physics and develop new simulation frameworks to analyze the experimental data and …

Calculate the Fermi-Dirac integral given the fermi energy and the order of integral
Notes on Fermi-Dirac Integrals (3rd Edition)
23 Sep 2008 | Papers | Contributor(s): Raseong Kim, Mark Lundstrom
Fermi-Dirac integrals appear frequently in semiconductor problems, so an understanding of their properties is essential. The purpose of these notes is to collect in one place, some basic information about Fermi-Dirac integrals and their properties.
We also present Matlab functions (in a zipped file) that calculate Fermi-Dirac integrals (the "script F" defined by Blakemore (1982)) in three different ways.
The function, "FD_int_approx.m", evaluates Fermi-Dirac integrals using analytic ...
