Learning Module: Band Structure for Pure and Doped Silicon
10 Dec 2018   Contributor(s):: Peilin Liao
In this lab, students will learn to perform online density functional theory (DFT) simulations to compute band structures and density of states (DOS) for pure and doped Si using the DFT Material Properties Simulator available on nanoHUB. The students will work with crystalline pure and doped...

Quantum Workshop IV: Modeling PN Junctions
16 Mar 2015   Contributor(s):: Stella Quinones
Students explore the PN Junction Simulation Tool in order to understand depletion, carrier modeling, and PN junction device physics. Analyze (i) carrier concentration and electric field as a function of doping, and (ii) energy barriers, depletion widths, and net charge density as a function of...
