31 Jan 2019   Contributor(s):: Yiheng Zhu
Photovoltaic simulation tools can be utilized to predict device performance before fabrication and experimentation, streamline research processes, and interpret experimental results. Therefore, we developed ContourPV, which simulates various combinations of values of different device...

Computational and Experimental Study of Transport in Advanced Silicon Devices
28 Jun 2013   Contributor(s):: Farzin Assad
In this thesis, we study electron transport in advanced silicon devices by focusing on the two most important classes of devices: the bipolar junction transistor (BJT) and the MOSFET. In regards to the BJT, we will compare and assess the solutions of a physically detailed microscopic model to...

Simulation time
Closed  Responses: 1
Do not know why, but despite the 21 points simulation asked (default), the simulation actually calculates ~500 voltage points and the simulation last 1530’. Did I miss something ?
