AICTE Sponsored Short Term Course

Modeling and Simulation of Advanced Semiconductor Devices

July 17-22, 2017
Organized by Department of Electronics Engineering, IIT(BHU), Varanasi-221005


About the Course
The physics based modeling of the electrical and optical characteristics of various semiconductor devices is an important area of research for the growth and development of semiconductor science and technology. While analytical modeling gives the physical inside of the device characteristics, TCAD simulation can provide the first hand information of various advanced semiconductor devices without going through complex mathematical modeling and practical fabrication and experimentation. The basic objective of this short-term course is to introduce various modeling and simulation techniques used for the performance characterization of advanced semiconductor devices including nanoscale field effect transistors (FETs), flexible transistors, nanoelectronic and optoelectronic devices to the young faculty members of AICTE approved technical colleges and universities. While the major emphasis will be given on the modeling and simulation aspects of the advanced nanoscaled CMOS transistors, the modeling and simulation aspects of high performance organic semiconductor based transistors and semiconductor optoelectronic devices will also be discussed in this course. The participants will also be introduced to the use of different industry standard TCAD software (e.g. Silvaco-ATLAS, Synopsis-TCAD and Cogenda-Visual TCAD) for simulating various 2D and 3D semiconductor devices. In addition, various characterization techniques for device analysis will be covered. The course will include both the expert lectures and practical sessions.
