By completing the Drift-Diffusion Lab in ABACUS - Assembly of Basic Applications for Coordinated Understanding of Semiconductors, users will be able to: a) understand the phenomenon of drift and diffusion, b) physically and mathematically describe the basic drift and diffusion mechanisms, and c) perform light excitation experiments on a semiconductor bar.
The specific objectives of the Drift-Diffusion Lab are:
Users who are new to drift and diffusion mechanisms should consult the following resource:
1. Rober F. Pierret. (1996). Semiconductor Device Fundamentals. Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley. (See especially chapter 3)
* Drift-Diffusion Modeling and Numerical Implementation Details (Implementation details and source code dissemination)
Exercises and Homework Assignments
Solutions to Exercises
Solutions to the exercises are available only to instructors!
In this final challenge users will integrate all what they have learned about basic Drift and Diffusion mechanisms.
