    This is an excellent talk that should be watched by anyone who is interested in how numerical simulations are set up, and how they relate to the analytic equations that we learn to use in introductory courses.

    It gives an introduction to the theory behind semiconductor simulation tools, describes some of the challenges of such simulations with examples. I found that the pace was good and the slides were clear.

    It a very good “primer” on the topic. A brief discussion on critical issues while simulating time dependent( high frequency,transients) will be very helpful and make it more complete.

    good examples of physical insight that can be obtained from numerical simulation of p-n junction. There is quite broad scope in the lecture, from mathematical formulation, tips in simulation, how the software runs, etc.

    Very good start for people who are interested. Nice mix of non-tech and very technical information.

    An advanced version, or part II, could preferably cover the coupled method as well. The models in MINIMOS were skipped over quite rapidly, the slide could have been left out completely.

    The points made were very clear and understandable. I feel like I have a better perspective of how device simulators work and what they are capable of doing.

    This is amazing. I found that I had carelessly done the simulation. It is very impressive and helpful.

    The lecture content was excellent… the slides were very well prepared. Points were illustrated with good, easy to understand examples/analogies/metaphors/etc. Pace of the lecture was good. However, one suggestion would be to the pen/highlighter tool in whatever presentation tool you are using — I know that Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 has one, and I\‘m fairly certain that Macromedia Breeze has one as well… the best way to do this would be to plug a USB mouse into your laptop for the lecture, or better yet, use a tablet PC. While laser pointers, yard sticks, and the like can be effective when giving most lectures, if your lecture happens to be recorded, then the people watching the lecture remotely at a later date will have no idea what you mean when you say \“here\” or \“there\” on the slide. By using the pen/highlighter tool during the presentation, you can preserve this in the recorded version.

    It is a good introduction to semiconductor device simulation. But there are many mathematics concepts which are a little difficult to follow for ones without a strong math background.

    This was a very good lecture. I was very pleased to found out that many numerical aspects for simulating nanoscale devices were covered here. It bolstered my knowledge of numerics immensely. Thanks very much to the lecturer, also to the Nanohub team.

    It was really a very good talk for beginning level device modeling and simulations. Thank you prof. Lundstorm.
