Dragica Vasileska Contributions on the nanoHUB
This resource belongs to the Dragica Vasileska Contributions on the nanoHUB group.
This set of slides describes the quantum-mechanical process for tunneling and how it is accounted for in modeling semiconductor devices. We explain WKB approximation, transfer matrix approach and the Tsu-Esaki formula for the calculation of the current.
