Quantm Corrections for Monte Carlo Simulation

Quantm Corrections for Monte Carlo Simulation

Size quantization is an important effect in modern scaled devices. Due to the cost and limitations of available full quantum approaches, it is appealing to extend semi-classical simulators by adding corrections for size quantization. Monte Carlo particle simulators are good candidates, because a quantum correction potential may simply be added to the standard solution for Poisson equation, with minimal changes in the algorithms. This talk will review and compare the various approaches available for quantum corrections in Monte Carlo simulation. Representative results will include MOS capacitors and ultra-scaled structures like double-gate MOSFET and FinFET.
