By completing the MOSFET Lab in ABACUS - Assembly of Basic Applications for Coordinated Understanding of Semiconductors, you will be able to:
a) understand the operation of MOSFET devices,
b) understand the limitations of the gradual channel approximation, and
c) understand the limitations of the drift-diffusion model.
The specific objectives of the MOSFET Lab are:
For better understanding of the operation and modeling of MOSFET devices, the following texts are highly recommended:
1. Michael Shur, Physics of Semiconductor Device (Prentice Hall).
2. Simon M. Sze and Kwok K. Ng, Physics of Semiconductor Devices (Wiley, 2006).
3. Dragica Vasileska, Stephen M. Goodnick and G. Klimeck, Computational Electronics: Semiclassical and Quantum Device Modeling and Simulation, Chapter 2 (CRC Press, 2010).
