Anisotropic Schrödinger Equation Quantum Corrections for 3D Monte Carlo Simulations of Nanoscale Multigate Transistors
05 Jan 2016   Contributor(s):: Karol Kalna, Muhammad Ali A. Elmessary, Daniel Nagy, Manuel Aldegunde
IWCE 2015 presentation. We incorporated anisotropic 2D Schrodinger equation based quantum corrections (SEQC) that depends on valley orientation into a 3D Finite Element (FE) Monte Carlo (MC) simulation toolbox. The MC toolbox was tested against experimental IDVG characteristics of the 22 nm...

Atomistic Alloy Disorder in Nanostructures
26 Feb 2007   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Electronic structure and quantum transport simulations are typically performed in perfectly ordered semiconductor structures. Bands and modes are defined resulting in quantized conduction and discrete states. But what if the material is fundamentally disordered? What if the disorder is at the...

Atomistic Modeling and Simulation Tools for Nanoelectronics and their Deployment on nanoHUB.org
16 Dec 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
At the nanometer scale the concepts of device and material meet and a new device is a new material and vice versa. While atomistic device representations are novel to device physicists, the semiconductor materials modeling community usually treats infinitely periodic structures. Two electronic...
