  3. Why does the electric field never change its sign?

    Q&A|Closed | Responses: 2


    I noticed while performing simulations, that the electric field does not change its sign when a DC bias greater than the built-in voltage is applied. One can...

  8. I V characteristic ?

    Q&A|Closed | Responses: 0

    First of thanking you very much for sharing this wonderful tool on PN junction. 

    I am using MATLAB for solving the same kind of configuration of PN junction and got the...


  9. Two functions in graphs?

    Q&A|Closed | Responses: 1

    So when I’m running the simulations, on all of my graphs, I’m getting two functions. A red one, and a blue one. Which of these two functions is the proper one to use? For instance,...


  10. pn junction I-V curve

    Q&A|Closed | Responses: 1

    For an ideal p-n junction, the Shockley equation applies and the I-V curve should be an exponential curve in forward bias. Why is it always linear in simulation?

    Though in 2D simulation,...


  11. Bias voltage parameter doesn’t work?

    Q&A|Closed | Responses: 2

    No matter what parameter is entered for the bias voltage, the integrated potential is 0.6 volts.

    If it’s a bug, it’s a serious one.

    If it’s a feature … what...

  13. Useful for very high doping reverse bias conditions?

    Q&A|Closed | Responses: 1

    I want to know how suitable this tool is for calculating IV characteristics for very high doped pn junctions into the 10(18) – 10(19) /cm3 under reverse bias conditions. It...


  14. PN Junction Lab – 100 Warnings

    Q&A|Open | Responses: 1

    I had some trouble running PN Junction Lab; it gave more than 100 warnings for some simulation cases and then stopped. I think I figured it out: using exactly 1 or 2 V as applied voltage does...
