Abstract

SAMIS provides a means of simulating III-V MISCAPs with the inclusion of impurity ionization effects and a non-parabolic DOS. This tool allows for different alloys of zinc blend type III-V crystals. The source code is provided under the GPL v.3 license and has additional functions (e.g. analyzing C-V measurements for interface state densities). For more information about the theory behind the calculations see: A.J. Grede and S.L. Rommel, [http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4821835 "Components of channel capacitance in metal-insulator-semiconductor capacitors."] Journal of Applied Physics, vol. 114, no. 11, p. 114510, 2013.
