Analytical and Numerical Solution of the Double Barrier Problem

28 Jun 2010 | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck, Parijat Sengupta, Dragica Vasileska

Tunneling is fully quantum-mechanical effect that does not have classical analog. Tunneling has revolutionized surface science by its utilization in scanning tunneling microscopes. In some device applications tunneling is required for the operation of the device (Resonant tunneling diodes,...

Bulk Monte Carlo: Implementation Details and Source Codes Download

01 Jun 2010 | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Stephen M. Goodnick

The Ensemble Monte Carlo technique has been used now for over 30 years as a numerical method to simulate nonequilibrium transport in semiconductor materials and devices, and has been the subject of numerous books and reviews. In application to transport problems, a random walk is generated to...
