Is dual gate device structure better from a thermal perspective?
01 Sep 2008   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 nonstationary nature of the carrier transport (velocity overshoot) in the device, which, in turn, makes less probable the interaction with phonons....
