3-D Quantum Transport Modeling (MIND Review: Band-to-band-tunneling transistors status report August 2010)
14 Jan 2014 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck, Mathieu Luisier
This presentation provides an overview of the OMEN transport capabilities for Band to band tunneling field effect transistors (TFETs) as of August 2010. The material was presented originally at the MIND review at Notre Dame on Aug. 17, 2010. The presentation motivates the work on the U.S. Patent 12858465 "Tunneling field-effect transistor with low leakage current" by Mathieu Luisier, Samarth Agarwal, Gerhard Klimeck. Specifically the presentation shows that thick body TFETs loose gate …

In quantum mechanics the time-independent Schrodinger's equation can be solved for eigenfunctions (also called eigenstates or wave-functions) and corresponding eigenenergies (or energy levels) for a stationary physical system. The wavefunction itself can take on negative and positive values and could be complex.
The square magnitude of the wave-function is the probability density of finding the particle in space at that particular energy level.
A quantum dot is a physical system that …
