Did you ever wonder how simulation programs really work? Do you want to learn how to simulate transistors using an advanced finite element program which solves the semiconductor equations? 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 nanoHUB.
The course gives an in-depth knowledge in simulation of device physics for advanced semiconductor devices for all application areas. The implementation of the semiconducor equations and the solution using the finite difference method, the finite element method and the finite volume method is explained.
We also cover the widely used compact BSIM models for circuit simulations.
Each year a few simulation and modelling research topics are introduced for prospective master thesis students.
