Modeling the Structure of GaAs MESFET Device

Microelectronic devices are in a continuous evolution day after day in the cycle of technology since the invention of the first active device in the human history such as the MESFET device .The main objective of this design project is to make students able to model a Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) Metal-Semiconductor Field-Effect-Transistor (MESFET) device using the Silvaco software where the MESFET is used in several real-life applications such as microwaves, RF technology, radar devices, satellite communications and optoelectronics as well. Furthermore, we used the silvaco software in order to see the physical characteristics of MESFET device by dividing our work in this project into two main parts where in the first part, we wrote a set of Silvaco Athena and ATLAS commands to model the...
