Studying the Program and Erase Cycle of an EEPROM Device
Using the Semiconductor Module, you can study the program and erase cycles of an electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) device.
Optimizing ISFET Designs with Multiphysics Simulation
Ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) measure pH levels for soil analysis, the production of dairy products, and more. Multiphysics simulation can help us optimize these devices.
Modeling a MOS Capacitor with the Semiconductor Module
MOS capacitors (MOSCAPs) contain 3 main parts: a semiconductor body or substrate, an insulator film, and a metal electrode (or gate). You can use the Semiconductor Module to model MOSCAP designs.
Learning Quantum Mechanics Concepts with Double-Barrier Structures
Quantum mechanics is a notoriously difficult subject to learn — and teach. Modeling a double-barrier structure is an effective way to teach quantum mechanics concepts to physics students.
Computing the Band Gap in Superlattices with the Schrödinger Equation
