GaAs PIN Photodiode
Application ID: 19705
This simple model demonstrates how to use the Semiconductor Optoelectronics interfaces to model a simple GaAs PIN diode structure. Both the stimulated and spontaneous emission in the semiconductor are accounted for. The corresponding absorption of the light and the associated change in the complex refractive index are included in a self-consistent manner.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
