Simulation of an Ion-Sensitive Field-Effect Transistor (ISFET)

An ion-sensitive field-effect transistor (ISFET) is constructed by replacing the gate contact of a MOSFET with an electrolyte of interest. The concentration of a specific ionic species in the electrolyte can be determined by measuring the change in the gate voltage due to the interaction ... Read More

P-N Junction 1D

This simple benchmark model computes the potential and carrier concentrations for a one-dimensional p-n junction using both the finite element and finite volume methods. The results are compared with an equivalent device from the book, "Semiconductor Devices: A Simulation Approach," by ... Read More

Double Barrier 1D

The double barrier structure is of interest because of its application in semiconductor devices such as resonant-tunneling diodes. This verification example demonstrates the Schrödinger Equation interface to set up a simple 1D GaAs/AlGaAs double barrier structure to analyze the ... Read More

P-N Diode Circuit

This model extracts spice parameters for a silicon p-n junction diode. The spice parameters are used to create a lumped-element equivalent circuit model of a half-wave rectifier that is compared to a full device level simulation. In this example, a device model is made by connecting a 2D ... Read More

A Silicon Quantum Dot in a Uniform Magnetic Field

This tutorial model solves a two-component Schrödinger equation for the eigenstates of a simple silicon quantum dot in a uniform magnetic field, based on the paper by Jock et al. on the topic of spin-orbit qubits. The built-in domain condition Lorentz Force for the Schrödinger Equation ... Read More

A Solar Cell with InAs Quantum Dots Embedded in AlGaAs/GaAs Quantum Wells

This example shows an approximate approach to model a dot-in-well solar cell as described by Asahi et al. in the reference paper. The quantum wells and the layers of quantum dots are each treated as lumped energy levels in the band gap. The authors specify transitions between the dot ... Read More

Heterojunction Tunneling

This benchmark model simulates a graded heterojunction using the thermionic emission formulation for the charge transfer over the junction. It shows the additional contribution to the current density from the quantum tunneling effect across the potential barrier, using the WKB ... Read More

Schottky Contact

Schottky Contact This benchmark simulates the behavior of an ideal Schottky barrier diode made of a tungsten contact deposited on a silicon wafer. The resulting J-V (current density vs. applied voltage) curve obtained from the model under forward bias is compared with experimental ... Read More

Breakdown in a MOSFET

MOSFETs typically operate in three regimes depending on the drain-source voltage for a given gate voltage. Initially the current-voltage relation is linear, this is the Ohmic region. As the drain-source voltage increases the extracted current begins to saturate, this is the saturation ... Read More

Wavelength Tunable LED

This application computes the emission properties of a AlGaN/InGaN LED. The emission intensity, spectrum, and efficiency are calculated for an applied voltage or as a function of voltage over a selected range. The indium composition in the light-emitting InGaN region can be varied in ... Read More
