The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.
Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.
In this first half of a two-part example, a 2D model of a trench-gate IGBT is built, which will be extended to 3D in the second half. In general, it is the most efficient to start with a 2D model to make sure everything works as expected, before extending it to 3D. The Caughey&ndash ... Read More
This benchmark model simulates a GaAs nanowire using the self-consistent Schrödinger-Poisson theory to compute the electron density and the confining potential profiles. The predefined Schrödinger-Poisson multiphysics coupling feature is combined with the dedicated Schrödinger-Poisson ... Read More
This tutorial compares experimental data from the literature with a COMSOL model of a MOSCAP with interface traps (surface states). The Trap-Assisted Surface Recombination feature is used to simulate the effects of the trap charges and the processes of carrier capturing and emitting by ... Read More
A gate-all-around MOSFET consists of a nanowire with a gate electrode wrapped around the circumference. Since the entire nanowire forms the channel, this configuration provides the best possible electrostatic control of the channel and offers a good candidate for the miniaturization of ... Read More
This tutorial simulates the turn-off transient (reverse recovery) of a simple PIN diode with an inductive load, loosely based on the book "Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices" by B. J. Baliga (p. 256, 2008 edition). Unlike the book, which assumes an initial constant current ramp ... Read More
In a MESFET, the gate forms a rectifying junction that controls the opening of the channel by varying the depletion width of the junction. In this model we simulate the response of a n-doped GaAs MESFET to different drain and gate voltages. For a n-doped material the electron ... Read More
This tutorial simulates the turn-on transient (forward recovery) of a simple PIN diode, based on the book "Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices" by B. J. Baliga (p. 242, 2008 edition). The diode is current driven with a constant ramp rate of 1e9, 2e9 and 1e10 A/cm^2/sec and a ... Read More
With an increase in the parallel component of the applied field, carriers can gain energies above the ambient thermal energy and be able to transfer energy gained by the field to the lattice by optical phonon emission. The latter effect leads to a saturation of the carriers mobility. The ... Read More
This tutorial demonstrates the use of the density-gradient formulation to include the effect of quantum confinement in the device physics simulation of a silicon inversion layer. This formulation requires only a moderate increase of computational resources as compared to the conventional ... Read More
