Product Overview

The emergence and rapid growth of nanoelectronics has led us to re-examine the principles of transport theory used in the physics of semiconductor devices and in the engineering community. It has become apparent that it is very important to reconsider the traditional semi-classical view of charge carrier transport and to properly take into account the wave-like nature of electrons by considering not only their coherence but also out-of-equilibrium states and scattering effects.

This book gives an overview of quantum transport approaches for nanodevices and focuses on the Wigner formalism. It details the implementation of a particle-based Monte Carlo solution of the Wigner transport equation and how the technique can be applied to typical devices exhibiting quantum phenomena, such as the resonant tunneling diode, the ultra-short silicon MOSFET and the carbon nanotube transistor. In the final part of the book, decoherence theory is used to explain the emergence of semi-classical transport in nanodevices.
