Modelling devices

A device is of little use if we do not describe its behavior with a model. Ideally, a physics-based analytical equation describes all aspects of the devices we study. If the involved physics is too complex, we revert to computer modeling - usually with finite-element modelling (FEM) techniques, sometimes using Monte Carlo. Our work on device modeling covers topics in which new materials and/or multiphysics (optics, mechanics) are required, for example:

We use a variety of FEM tools to model our devices, such as Silvaco, Synopsys and COMSOL Multiphysics. For analytical calculations we also have tools such as Mathcad, and Mathematica.
