In the semiconductor toolbox the following models can be used in order to calculate the chosen properties of the semiconductor structure.

  • Band Structure calculation: Calculates the band structure of the device according to the selected models considering internal or external strain.
  • Occupation calculation: Finds the properties of the device in equilibrium, including thermal and quantum mechanical effects.
  • Device calculation: Finds the properties of the device out of equilibrium solving the drift diffusion equations self consistently with the band structure and occupation calculation.
