ACUTE  Bandstructure Assignment
07 Jul 2011   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This is assignment that is part of the ACUTE toolbased curricula that guides the students step by step how to implement an empirical pseudopotential method for the bandstructure calculation.

ACUTE  PN Diode Modeling
07 Jul 2011   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
In this assignment, starting from an equilibrium Poisson equation solver for pndiode, students are required to develop a complete 1D driftdiffusion simulator using the lecture materials provided as part of the ACUTE toolbased curricula.

ACUTE  Process Simulation Assignment
28 Jul 2011   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This assignment teaches the students the ion implantation process.

BJT  Simulation Exercise
03 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This simulation exercise teaches the students the operation of BJT transistor, what is current gain and how one extracts current gain from the Gummel plot. It also provides output device characteristics from which students have to extract the Early voltage. Furthermore, it makes the students...

BJT Problems and PADRE Exercise
11 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This set of problems makes the students familiar with hparameters and they also teach them how to write the input deck for simulation of BJT device to obtain the Gummel plot, the output characteristics and to extract the hparameters. Also here, students are taught how to treat current contacts...

Bulk Monte Carlo Code Described
01 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
In this tutorial we give implementation details for the bulk Monte Carlo code for calculating the electron drift velocity, velocityfield characteristics and average carrier energy in bulk GaAs materials. Identical concepts with minor details apply to the development of a bulk Monte Carlo code...

Bulk Monte Carlo Lab:Scattering Rates for Parabolic vs. NonParabolic Bands: an Exercise
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise helps the students learn the importance of the nonparabolic band approximation for large carrier energies.

Computational Electronics
07 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck, Stephen M. Goodnick
As semiconductor feature sizes shrink into the nanometer scale regime, device behavior becomes increasingly complicated as new physical phenomena at short dimensions occur, and limitations in material properties are reached. In addition to the problems related to the actual operation of...

Computational Electronics
02 Jun 2006   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
Scaling of CMOS devices into the nanometer regime leads to increased processing cost. In this regard, the field of Computational Electronics is becoming more and more important because device simulation offers unique possibility to test hypothetical devices which have not been fabricated yet and...
