Degeneracy in the ensemble Monte Carlo method for high-field transport in semiconductors
MetadataShow full item record
An algorithm to include the Pauli exclusion principle in the Ensemble Monte Carlo method is presented. The results indicate that significant changes in the transport properties of GaAs have to be expected when degenerate conditions are reached. Important repercussions should be found in the modeling of microwave devices, where one often deals with highly doped regions.
