This book provides a thorough introduction to, and review of, the modelling of semiconductor devices using the Monte Carlo particle method. Beginning with a review of the essential physics of solid-state devices and electron transport, Dr Moglestue then explains the particle modelling technique with applications to semiconductor devices using illustrative examples from actual experience. The author draws on a wealth of experience in the field to provide a tutorial and reference source for device physicists, electronics engineers and graduate students wishing to apply Monte Carlo techniques.
