Abstract

The Bulk Monte Carlo Tool calculates the bulk values of the electron drift velocity and electron average energy for electric fields applied in arbitrary crystallographic direction in both column IV (Si and Ge) and III-V (GaAs, SiC and GaN) materials. All relevant scattering mechanisms for the materials being considered have been included in the model. Detailed derivation of the scattering rates for most of the scattering mechanisms included in the model can be found on Prof. Vasileska personal web-site http://vasileska.faculty.asu.edu .

Description of the Monte Carlo method used to solve the Boltzmann Transport Equation and implementation details of the tool are given in the

Available also is a voiced presentation

that gives more insight on the implementation details of the Ensemble Monte Carlo technique for the solution of the Boltzmann Transport Equation.

Examples of simulations that can be performed with this tool are given below:
