A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It is made of a solid piece of semiconductor material, with at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of the transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. Because the controlled (output) power can be much more than the controlling (input) power, the transistor provides amplification of a signal.More information on Transistor can be found here.
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...
Efficiency Enhancement for Nanoelectronic Transport Simulations
02 Feb 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Jun Huang
PhD thesis of Jun HuangContinual technology innovations make it possible to fabricate electronic devices on the order of 10nm. In this nanoscale regime, quantum physics becomes critically important, like energy quantization effects of the narrow channel and the leakage currents due to tunneling....
Electron Transport in Schottky Barrier CNTFETs
24 Oct 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Bejenari
A given review describes models based on Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation, which are used to obtain I-V characteristics for ballistic CNTFETs with Schottky-Barrier (SB) contacts. The SB is supposed to be an exponentially or linearly decaying function along the channel. The ...
Modeling Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Transistors
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Ramesh Venugopal
As critical transistor dimensions scale below the 100 nm (nanoscale) regime, quantum mechanical effects begin to manifest themselves and affect important device performance metrics. Therefore, simulation tools which can be applied to design nanoscale transistors in the future, require new theory...
Multiple Transfers of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes on Silicon Wafers
20 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Alan Salvador Teran
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have many applications, including high speed transistor devices (see Figure 1). SWCNTs are grown on single-crystal quartz wafers and then transferred onto silicon wafers by a process that involves gold evaporation and thermal release tape. When they are...
Physics and Simulation of Quasi-Ballistic Transport in Nanoscale Transistors
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Jung-Hoon Rhew
The formidable progress in microelectronics in the last decade has pushed thechannel length of MOSFETs into decanano scale and the speed of BJTs into hundreds of gigahertz. This progress imposes new challenges on device simulation as the essential physics of carrier transport departs that of...
Theory and characterization of random defect formation and its implication in variability of nanoscale transistors
30 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Ahmad Ehteshamul Islam
Over the last 50 years, carrier transport has been the central research topic in the semiconductor area. The outcome was a dramatic improvement in the performance of a transistor, which is one of the basic building blocks in almost all the modern electronic devices. However, nanoscale dimensions...
