Quantum Transport, Pauli Master Equation, n-i-n, RTD, DGFET
On the way to develop a complete full-band quantum transport simulation using the Pauli Master Equation, we show our present results on 1D n-i-n resistors, 1D double barrier resonant tunneling diodes (DBRTD), and 2D double-gate field effect transistors (DGFETs) using a simplified parabolic, spherical effective-mass band-structure model accounting for nonpolar scattering with acoustic (elastic) and optical (inelastic) silicon-like phonons. We also consider the effect of point-like dopants on the access resistance of thin-body double gate devices.
