The course gives an in-depth knowledge in simulation of advanced semiconductor devices for all application areas with a focus on CMOS. Other topics include power devices, solar cells and emerging technologies such as spintronics.
This course is based on learning by doing, which means that you learn by using state of the art tools such as Comsol Multiphysics and cloud based tools such as nanoHUB. We also cover SPICE simulations topics such as the BSIM compact model family for circuit simulations.
We explain the solution the semiconductor equations using numerical methods. In connection to this topic, we introduce the finite element method (FEM) in relevant contexts.
This course is a good introduction to a master's thesis in the semiconductor device field. Several thesis projects are offered each academic year.
