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
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
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
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
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
This benchmark model simulates three different heterojunction configurations under forward and reverse bias. It shows the difference in using the continuous quasi-Fermi level formulation versus the thermionic emission formulation for the charge transfer across the heterojunction. The ... Read More
This tutorial analyzes the DC characteristics of an InSb p-Channel FET, using the density-gradient theory to add the effect of quantum confinement to the conventional drift-diffusion formulation, without a large increase of computational resources. The confinement effect is applied both ... Read More
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
