Publication# Charge-based modeling of ultra narrow junctionless cylindrical nanowire FETs

Abstract

This brief proposes an analytical approach to model the DC electrical behavior of extremely narrow cylindrical junctionless nanowire field-effect transistors (JL-NW-FETs). The model includes explicit expressions, taking into account the first-order perturbation theory for calculating eigenstates and corresponding wave-functions obtained by the Schro center dot dinger equation in the cylindrical-coordinate. Assessment of the proposed model with technology computer-aided design (TCAD) simulations and measurement results confirms its validity for all regions of operation. This represents an essential step toward the analysis of circuits, mainly biosensors based on junctionless nanowire transistors.

Perturbation theory (quantum mechanics)

In quantum mechanics, perturbation theory is a set of approximation schemes directly related to mathematical perturbation for describing a complicated quantum system in terms of a simpler one. The idea is to start with a simple system for which a mathematical solution is known, and add an additional "perturbing" Hamiltonian representing a weak disturbance to the system. If the disturbance is not too large, the various physical quantities associated with the perturbed system (e.g.

Perturbation theory

In mathematics and applied mathematics, perturbation theory comprises methods for finding an approximate solution to a problem, by starting from the exact solution of a related, simpler problem. A critical feature of the technique is a middle step that breaks the problem into "solvable" and "perturbative" parts. In perturbation theory, the solution is expressed as a power series in a small parameter . The first term is the known solution to the solvable problem. Successive terms in the series at higher powers of usually become smaller.

Computer-aided design

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the use of computers (or ) to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. This software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing. Designs made through CAD software are helpful in protecting products and inventions when used in patent applications. CAD output is often in the form of electronic files for print, machining, or other manufacturing operations.
