    22 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck

    A resonant tunneling diode (RTD) is a type of diode with a resonant tunneling structure that allows electrons to tunnel through various resonant states at certain energy levels. RTDs can be fabricated using many different types of materials (such as III-V, type IV, II-VI semiconductors) and...

  11. Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 23: NEMO1D - Importance of New Boundary Conditions

    09 Mar 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    One of the key insights gained during the NEMO1D project was the development of new boundary conditions that enabled the modeling of realistically extended Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs). The new boundary conditions are based on the partitioning of the device into emitter and collector...

  12. Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 24: NEMO1D - Incoherent Scattering

    09 Mar 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    Incoherent processes due to phonons, interface roughness and disorder had been suspected to be the primary source of the valley current of resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs) at the beginning of the NEMO1D project in 1994. The modeling tool NEMO was created at Texas Instruments to fundamentally...

  13. Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 25b: NEMO1D - Hole Bandstructure in Quantum Wells and Hole Transport in RTDs

    09 Mar 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    Heterostructures such as resonant tunneling diodes, quantum well photodetectors and lasers, and cascade lasers break the symmetry of the crystalline lattice. Such break in lattice symmetry causes a strong interaction of heavy-, light- and split-off hole bands. The bandstructure of holes and the...
