Finding the Maximum Potential and Integrated Charge

ccdex03.in : Finding the Maximum Potential and Integrated Charge

Requires: Atlas
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.22.1.R

This example demonstrates postprocessing on CCD structures from the previous examples. It shows:

  • Extraction of the line of maximum potential from a 2D structure
  • 2D integration of a charge packet

The first section of the example takes a solution file from the transient charge transfer in the first example in this section. It uses the extract feature max.conc.file to store a file of the maximum potential for each x location in the structure. This file can be plotted directly in TonyPlot. Alternatively, the file can be overlayed onto the 2D structure in TonyPlot. This can be performed by plotting the 2D CCD structure with the flag -ccd . To overlay the file saved by extract, right mouse click on the main TonyPlot window and choose "Maximum Potential".

The second and third extract statements use the 2D integration feature of extract to give the integrated electron concentration in the charge packet. This is done for both empty and full well conditions.
