Silvaco TCAD Knowledge Base - Academic Course Materials


This ten week training period was achieved at the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Madrid (IMM) where the Doctor Pablo Aitor Postigo was my tutor. In order to develop single photon emitters and entangled photon emitters on III-V semiconductor materials, photonic crystals with quantum dots are studied by the MBE group of the IMM.
 
An investigation of the teaching of Silicon Processing technology through a computer simulation software from SILVACO. The work covers the 2-D simulation of various fabrication steps such as oxidation, diffusion, ion implantation and comparison with 1-D analytical models.
