Written by Jeff Bude and Kent Smith of AT&T Bell Laboratories, SMC (Simplex Monte Carlo) is a Full band Monte Carlo code for silicon that can simulate both electron and hole transport in arbitrary two-dimensional device structure. There are two other Monte Carlo codes at nanoHUB: DEMON simulates single carrier (electron) transport in one-dimensional device, while MOCA simulates single carrier (electron) transport in 2D structures like SOI MOSFET. The two carrier, full band feature of SMC allows the code to simulate – among other things – impact ionization of hot carriers and allows one to infer the reliability properties of transistors. Compared to typical Monte Carlo codes, SMC runs much faster, because of its innovative gridding of the k-space, and it use of frozen self-consistent solution from the drift-diffusion code as the potential profile., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
