Band Structure Lab: First-Time User Guide
15 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Benjamin P Haley, Gerhard Klimeck
This document provides useful information about Band Structure Lab. First-time users will find basic ideas about the physics behind the tool such as band formation, the Hamiltonian description, and other aspects. Additionally, we provide explanations of the input settings and the results of the...
Bulk Monte Carlo: Implementation Details and Source Codes Download
01 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Stephen M. Goodnick
The Ensemble Monte Carlo technique has been used now for over 30 years as a numerical method to simulate nonequilibrium transport in semiconductor materials and devices, and has been the subject of numerous books and reviews. In application to transport problems, a random walk is generated to...
Double-Clamped Silicon NEMS Resonators Model
22 Feb 2016 | Compact Models | Contributor(s):
By Yanfei Shen1, Scott Calvert1, Jeffrey F. Rhoads1, Saeed Mohammadi1
This model is built for a silicon-based, double-clamped (source and drain), double-gate beam. The model takes into account capacitive modulation with the two gates, piezoresistive modulation...
Learning Module: Bonding and Band Structure in Silicon
The main goal of this learning module is to help students learn about the correlation between atomic structure and electronic properties, and help them develop a more intuitive understanding of...
