Comparing the Operation of p-i-n vs. p-n Junction Diodes Using PN Junction Lab in ABACUS
23 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: André Schleife, Materials Science and Engineering at Illinois
In this activity, students use the PN Junction Lab simulation tool in ABACUS on nanoHUB to simulate different p-i-n or p-n diode structures. Plots of hole concentration and electric field as a function of position, along with the gand structure with and without applied bias, will be...
Quantum Workshop IV: Modeling PN Junctions
16 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Stella Quinones
Students explore the PN Junction Simulation Tool in order to understand depletion, carrier modeling, and PN junction device physics. Analyze (i) carrier concentration and electric field as a function of doping, and (ii) energy barriers, depletion widths, and net charge density as a function of...
PN Junctions: Simulation and Calculation of Electrostatic Variables
02 Jan 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Stella Quinones
Homework assignment that combines basic PN junction electrostatic variable calculations (Vbi, Xn, Xp and Emax) with the simulation of PN junctions for 2 sets of doping conditions. Both forward and reverse bias conditions are simulated. This homework assignment is designed for junior level...
