Atomistic Modeling of Nano Devices: From Qubits to Transistors
13 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Rajib Rahman
In this talk, I will describe such a framework that can capture complex interactions ranging from exchange and spin-orbit-valley coupling in spin qubits to non-equilibrium charge transport in tunneling transistors. I will show how atomistic full configuration interaction calculations of exchange...
A UCSD analytic TFET model
18 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Jianzhi Wu, Yuan Taur
A continuous, analytic I-V model is developed for double-gate and nanowire tunnel FETs with 3D density of states, including depletion in the source. At the core of the model is a gate-controlled channel potential that satisfies the source and drain boundary conditions. Verified by...

Device Physics Studies of III-V and Silicon MOSFETS for Digital Logic
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Himadri Pal
III-V's are currently gaining a lot of attraction as possible MOSFET channel materials due to their high intrinsic mobility. Several challenges, however, need to be overcome before III-V's can replace silicon (Si) in extremely scaled devices. The effect of low density-of-states of III-V...
III-V Nanoscale MOSFETS: Physics, Modeling, and Design
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Yang Liu
As predicted by the International Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), power consumption has been the bottleneck for future silicon CMOS technology scaling. To circumvent this limit, researchers are investigating alternative structures and materials, among which III-V compound semiconductor-based...
Inelastic Transport in Carbon Nanotube Electronic and Optoelectronic Devices
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Siyu Koswatta
Discovered in the early 1990's, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are found to have exceptional physical characteristics compared to conventional semiconductor materials, with much potential for devices surpassing the performance of present-day electronics. Semiconducting CNTs have large carrier...
Quantum and Atomistic Effects in Nanoelectronic Transport Devices
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Neophytos Neophytou
As devices scale towards atomistic sizes, researches in silicon electronic device technology are investigating alternative structures and materials. As predicted by the International Roadmap for Semiconductors, (ITRS), structures will evolve from planar devices into devices that include 3D...
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...
