Diffusion of holes and electrons
15 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
Diffusion is a process of particles distributing themselves from regions of high to low concentrations. In semiclassical electronics these particles are the charge carriers (electrons and holes). The rate at which a carrier can diffuse is called diffusion constant with units of cm2/s. The...

FermiDirac statistics with temperature
15 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
FermiDirac statistics is applied to identical particles with halfinteger spin (such as electrons) in a system that is in thermal equilibrium. Since particles are assumed to have negligible mutual interactions, this allows a multiparticle system to be described in terms of singleparticle...

3D wavefunctions
12 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
In quantum mechanics the timeindependent Schrodinger's equation can be solved for eigenfunctions (also called eigenstates or wavefunctions) and corresponding eigenenergies (or energy levels) for a stationary physical system. The wavefunction itself can take on negative and positive values and...

Electronic band structure
12 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
In solidstate physics, the electronic band structure (or simply band structure) of a solid describes ranges of energy in which an electron is "forbidden" or "allowed". The band structure is also often called the dispersion or the E(k) relationship. It is a mathematical relationship between the...
