Impact of Nuclear Reaction Models on Neutron-Induced Soft Error Rate Analysis

  title={Impact of Nuclear Reaction Models on Neutron-Induced Soft Error Rate Analysis},
  author={Shin-ichiro Abe and Ryotaro Ogata and Yukinobu Watanabe},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science},
Terrestrial neutron-induced soft error rate (SER) analyses in the 25-nm design rule MOSFET are performed by means of multiscale Monte Carlo simulation with different nuclear reaction models used in PHITS code. It is clarified that a choice of nuclear reaction models has a great effect on the SER prediction. Even if the calculated production cross sections for secondary ions are the same among different reaction models, the difference in double-differential cross sections results in essential… CONTINUE READING
