Transient Negative Mobility and Negative Differential Conductivity in Xenon
Application ID: 98541
This tutorial model presents a study showing the transient negative mobility and the negative differential conductivity effects in xenon. The stationary and time dependent Boltzmann equation in the two-term approximation is used to compute the electron energy distribution function. Electron energy distribution functions, electron mean energy, and drift velocity agrees well with simulation results published by Z. Donko and N. Dyatko.
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.
