Exercise: Crystal Lattices
29 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise helps the student better understand various types of crystal lattices, in particular diamond and zincblende and also helps in better understanding of the miller indicies. The results to some of these problems can be easily arrived at by using the crystal viewer tool.www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF

Exercise: MATLAB Tool Construction for Degenerate/Nondegenerate Semiconductors That Includes Partial Ionization of the Dopants
29 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise teaches the students how to calculate EcEf from charge neutrality for general FermiDirac statistics and compensated semiconductors. As such it then allows the student to calculate temperature dependence of the electron and hole densities as well as the position of the Fermi level.www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF

How QuantumMechanical SpaceQuantization is Implemented in Schred, DriftDiffusion (SILVACO ATLAS) and ParticleBased Device Simulators (Quamc2D)
27 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska
This brief presentation outlines how one can implement quantummechanical space quantization effects exactly (using Schred) and approximately in driftdiffusion (using SILVACO), as well as particlebased device simulators (using Quamc2D).

Stationary Perturbation Theory: an Exercise for PCPBT
28 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

Quantum Mechanics: Hydrogen Atom
09 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The solution of the Schrödinger equation (wave equations) for the hydrogen atom uses the fact that the Coulomb potential produced by the nucleus is isotropic (it is radially symmetric in space and only depends on the distance to the nucleus). Although the resulting energy eigenfunctions (the "orbitals") are not necessarily isotropic themselves, their dependence on the angular coordinates follows completely generally from this isotropy of the underlying potential: The eigenstates of the ...

BJT Problems and PADRE Exercise
11 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This set of problems makes the students familiar with hparameters and they also teach them how to write the input deck for simulation of BJT device to obtain the Gummel plot, the output characteristics and to extract the hparameters. Also here, students are taught how to treat current contacts (such as the base contact in BJT).

Computational Electronics
07 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck, Stephen M. Goodnick
As semiconductor feature sizes shrink into the nanometer scale regime, device behavior becomes increasingly complicated as new physical phenomena at short dimensions occur, and limitations in material properties are reached. In addition to the problems related to the actual operation of ultrasmall devices, the reduced feature sizes require more complicated and timeconsuming manufacturing processes. This fact signifies that a pure trialanderror approach to device optimization will become ...
