MULTIDIMENSIONAL DISCRETIZATION SCHEME FOR THE HYDRODYNAMIC MODEL OF SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES

MULTIDIMENSIONAL DISCRETIZATION SCHEME FOR THE HYDRODYNAMIC MODEL OF SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES A discretization technique is proposed for the multidimensional, steadystate hydrodynamic model of semiconductor devices, and a derivation of the model's appropriate boundary conditions is given. The model includes the complete balance equations for charge, momentum and energy, coupled with Poisson's equation, thus accounting for both diffusion and convection phenomena. The technique, like the ScharfetterGummel scheme for the simpler driftdiffusion model, provides an efficient method for solving the hydrodynamic equations, allowing for a more detailed investigation of carrier dynamics in semiconductor devices. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png COMPEL: The International Journal for Computation and Mathematics in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A discretization technique is proposed for the multidimensional, steadystate hydrodynamic model of semiconductor devices, and a derivation of the model's appropriate boundary conditions is given. The model includes the complete balance equations for charge, momentum and energy, coupled with Poisson's equation, thus accounting for both diffusion and convection phenomena. The technique, like the ScharfetterGummel scheme for the simpler driftdiffusion model, provides an efficient method for solving the hydrodynamic equations, allowing for a more detailed investigation of carrier dynamics in semiconductor devices.
