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 ... Read More
This tutorial uses a simple 1D model of a silicon solar cell to illustrate the basic steps to set up and perform a device physics simulation with the Semiconductor Module. A user-defined expression is used for the photo-generation rate and the result shows typical I-V and P-V curves of ... Read More
This model calculates the DC characteristics of a simple MOSFET. The drain current versus gate voltage characteristics are first computed in order to determine the threshold voltage for the device. Then the drain current vs drain voltage characteristics are computed for several gate ... Read More
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
This model simulates a GaN based light emitting diode. The emission intensity, spectrum, and quantum efficiency are calculated as a function of the driving current. Direct radiative recombination across the band gap is modeled, as well as non-radiative Auger and trap-assisted ... Read More
This model demonstrates how to couple the Semiconductor interface to the Heat Transfer in Solids interface. A thermal analysis is performed on the existing bipolar transistor model in the case when the device is operated in the active-forward configuration. The Semiconductor interface ... Read More
