About this book


This book describes the state of the art in transport modeling, relevant for the simulation of nanoscale semiconductor devices.� It systematically explains theoretical approaches and numerical solutions that are used in explaining the operation of both power devices and nano-scale devices. It clearly explains for what types of devices a particular method is suitable, which is the most critical point that a researcher faces and has to decide upon when modeling semiconductor devices.� This book compiles different approaches to the problem of transport in mesoscopic semiconductor systems, ranging from semi-classical to fully quantum mechanical, in order to understand the advantages and limitations of each, as well as elucidating the complex and interesting phenomena encountered in ultra-small devices. �
