Abstract:

Results to implement non-equilibrium phonon distributors into a conventional Monte Carlo electron transport simulation are report. A new code for a simulation of the simplified model of low-temperature steady-state acoustic phonon-electron transport in GaAs has been developed and applied. This model has been extended to a fully time-dependent transient calculation of optical phonon interactions with near ballistic electrons in n-GaAs in the overshoot regime at room temperature 1 by modifying standard Monte Carlo codes to accommodate the numerical procedures required for nonequilibrium phonon calculations and by applying these to real device phenomena such as picosecond response in n-GaAs to a high field pulse.
