Lecture 1: Percolation in Electronic Devices
04 Nov 2008   Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
Even a casual review of modern electronics quickly convinces everyone that randomness of geometrical parameters must play a key role in understanding the transport properties. Despite the diversity of these phenomena however, the concepts percolation theory provides a broad theoretical framework...

From density functional theory to defect level in silicon: Does the “band gap problem” matter?
01 Oct 2008   Contributor(s):: Peter A. Schultz
Modeling the electrical effects of radiation damage in semiconductor devices requires a detailed description of the properties of point defects generated during and subsequent to irradiation. Such modeling requires physical parameters, such as defect electronic levels, to describe carrier...
