Authors: B. Winstead, H. Tsuchiya and U. Ravaioli

Affilation: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, United States

Pages: 566 - 569

Keywords: Monte Carlo device simulation, quantum correction, Wigner function, tunneling

A particle-based approach coupled with quantum potential corrections is very attractive for practical simulation of nanoscale semiconductor devices. We present here a quantum correction approach derived from a simplification of the Wigner function transpo
