Abstract:

Fast and accurate techniques for determining electron fluxes and energy deposition profile in complex multidimensional microcircuits have been developed. The multidimensional Spencer-Lewis Transport equation is solved deterministically using several special numerical techniques. We begin with the derivation of the Spencer-Lewis equation. Then we discuss SMART scattering theory that enables us to replace the highly anisotropic electron scattering kernal by one that is more amenable to numerical treatment. Next, we describe several transport and diffusion theory solution algorithms. Finally, we present new analytical benchmarking methods that will prove useful in generating more comprehensive benchmarks.
