Bulk Monte Carlo: Implementation Details and Source Codes Download
01 Jun 2010 | Teaching Materials | 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 …

This presentation contains the research findings related to self-heating effects in nano-scale devices in silicon on insulator devices obtained at Arizona State University. Different device technologies and different device geometries are being examined. Details of the theoretical model used in …
Is dual gate device structure better from a thermal perspective?
01 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Stephen M. Goodnick
This presentation illustrates several points. First, it is shown that in nanoscale devices there is less degradation due to heating effects due to non-stationary nature of the carrier transport (velocity overshoot) in the device, which, in turn, makes less probable the interaction with phonons. …
