About this book

Particle simulation of semiconductor devices is a rather new field which has started to catch the interest of the world's scientific community. It represents a time-continuous solution of Boltzmann's transport equation, or its quantum mechanical equivalent, and the field equation, without encountering the usual numerical problems associated with the direct solution. The technique is based on first physical principles by following in detail the transport histories of indiĀ­ vidual particles and gives a profound insight into the physics of semiconductor devices. The method can be applied to devices of any geometrical complexity and material composition. It yields an accurate description of the device, which is not limited by the assumptions made behind the alternative drift diffusion and hydrodynamic models, which represent approximate solutions to the transport equation. While the development of the particle modelling technique has been hampered in the past by the cost of computer time, today this should not be held against using a method which gives a profound physical insight into individual devices and can be used to predict the properties of devices not yet manufactured. Employed in this way it can save the developer much time and large sums of money, both important considerations for the laboratory which wants to keep abreast of the field of device research. Applying it to al ready existing electronic components may lead to novel ideas for their improvement. The Monte Carlo particle simulation technique is applicable to microelectronic components of any arbitrary shape and complexity.

Reviews

The principle attraction and strength of the book lie in the results..The stated aims of the book are to explain the Monte Carlo method and to illustrate its power and potential...two additional messages are conveyed: the undoubted enthusiasm of the author, and the singular and compelling attractiveness of the numerical technique in which he has specialised. - Semiconductor Science & Technology; ...the book conveys an infectious enthusiasm for an unusual and attractive approach to numerical modelling -Electronics and Communication Engineering Journal
