Monte Carlo modeling of nanometer scale MOSFETs

By E Sangiorgi, Pierpaolo Palestri, David Esseni, C Fiegna and Luca Selmi


Recent developments in the Monte Carlo method for the simulation of semi-classical carrier transport in nano-MOSFETs include the treatment of quantum-mechanical effects in the simulation (using either the Multi-Subband approach or quantum corrections to the electrostatic potential). In this paper, after reviewing recent progress in this field, selected applications are presented, including the analysis of quasi-ballistic transport, the determination of the RF characteristics of deca-nanometric MOSFETs, and the study of non-conventional device structures and channel materials
