### Tunneling-Assisted Currents in n+p+ Amorphous Silicon Junctions

A theoretical model for the tunneling transport of charge carriers in forward-biased heavily doped amorphous silicon pn junctions was recently presented. In this paper, in addition to current-voltage characteristics in the forward direction, reverse-voltage characteristics [...]

### Optimization of FIBMOSs through 2-D Device Simulations

Channel engineering can enhance the performance of MOSFETs. Focused ion beam (FIB) implant technology is one approach for such channel engineering. We have investigated FIB and present a sophisticated optimization technique for FIB MOSFETs (FIBMOS) [...]

### Modelling of the “Gated-Diode” Configuration in Bulk MOSFET’s

A study of the “gated-diode” configuration in MOSFET’s for characterising hot-carrier degradation by employing 2-D simulations is presented in this paper. We use both process and device simulations to understand operational sensitivity of this technique. [...]

### Investigation of High Frequency Noise in a SiGe HBT Based on Shockley’s Impedance Field Method and the Hydrodynamic Model

This paper presents the first simulation of the minimum noise figure of a heterojunction bipolar transistor based on Shockley's impedance field method and the hydrodynamic model. The hydrodynamic model and the impedance field method are [...]

### Two-Dimensional MOSFET Dopant Profile by Inverse Modeling via Source/Drain-to-Substrate Capacitance Measurement

This paper proposes and demonstrates a new approach to 2-dimensional dopant profile extraction for MOSFET's by treating the source/drain-to-substrate junction as a gated diode. The small-signal capacitance of the diode measured as a function of [...]

This paper reports that the Stacked-Surrounding Gate Transistor (S-SGT) DRAM achieves a cell size of 2.4F 2. The S-SGT DRAM is structured by stacking several SGT-type cells in series vertically. In order to realize cell [...]

### Inverse Modeling for C-V Profiling of Modulated-Doped Semiconductor Structures

Inverse modeling is a way for the verification of device models and for the parameter extraction. A technique of doping profile extraction of semiconductor structures based on the capacitance-voltage measurements (or C-V profiling) is used [...]

In this paper, a new theoretical approach to submicrometer MOSFET subthreshold current modeling is presented. The diffusion and drift currents are calculated, respectively. The effect of velocity overshoot on subthreshold current is investigated. Comparison with [...]

### Monte-Carlo Simulation of GaAs Devices Using High Generality Object-Oriented Code and Encapsulated Scattering Tables

Many factors are responsible for the continued shift in industry prototyping preference from device fabrication to device simulation. One of the incentives for this transition is the generality and flexibility gained by avoiding a physical [...]
