25-nm p-MOSFFET

mcdeviceex04.in : 25-nm p-MOSFFET

Requires: MC Device
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.22.1.R

This example demonstrates 2D Monte Carlo device modeling of a silicon p-MOSFET without quantum correction.

For all aspects of this example apart from the quantum correction, please see mcdeviceex02.

This example was generated by changing all n-type dopants to p-type dopants, all p-type dopants to n-type dopants, and by negating all applied bias voltages.

The CARRIER parameter on the ALGO statement is changed from CARRIER = E for electrons (as in mcdeviceex02) to CARRIER = H for holes. This means that holes are modeled using the Monte Carlo transport model and electrons are modeled using the constant quasi-Fermi method. In mcdeviceex02, these choices are reversed.

In additional, the PHON , BANDS , and FINAL statements are added near the end of the input file (just before the SOLVE statement). These three statements are provided here to change to settings consistent with CARRIER = H. The default values for these three statements are are consistent with CARRIER = E.

In this case, the x-component of the currents produced by the p-MOSFET are negative while the x-component of the current produced by the n-MOSFET were positive. This is as expected and follows the sign conventions for the current described in the "Current Regions" section of the MCDEVICE chapter of the Atlas User's Manual.
