  1. Comparing the Operation of p-i-n vs. p-n Junction Diodes Using PN Junction Lab in ABACUS

    23 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: André Schleife, Materials Science and Engineering at Illinois

    In this activity, students use the PN Junction Lab simulation tool in ABACUS on nanoHUB to simulate different p-i-n or p-n diode structures.  Plots of hole concentration and electric field as a function of position, along with the gand structure with and without applied bias, will be...

  2. 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...

  10. PN Junction Lab: First-Time User Guide

    13 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Benjamin P Haley

    This first-time user guide provides introductory material to PN Junction Lab on nanoHUB. The introduction to PN junctions is followed by a tour of the Rappture interface, which notes key inputs and typical outputs. We discuss the default simulation (what happens if you don't change any inputs,...
