Abstract:

We report here on the acquisition of a specific computational platform with an optimized architecture for the Cellular Monte Carlo particle -based T - CAD simulation tools developed by our group. Such code is used for the modeling and design of electron devices realized with nontraditional semiconductor materials, where the experimental determination of material parameters for simulation purposes is arduous or incomplete. The acquired equipment has been successfully deployed and is making possible the extraction of device parameters from simulation data performed at molecular resolution. For the first time, the parameters extracted with our tools will supply quantitative predictions of direct RF measurements as well as the electro - thermal device characteristics the equipment will therefore allow the device design even in absence of reliable experiments.
