Coupling the Phase-Field Method with an electrothermal solver to simulate phase change mechanisms in PCRAM cells


In order to simulate the electro-thermal characteristics of our devices and to reproduce the phase change mechanisms of the PCM material during the set and reset operations, we have developped a finite element electro-thermal solver coupled with the Phase Field Method. Retention simulations for full GST layers are first presented. Then set simulations, with… (More)
