The full complex band structure model in ultra-scaled (∼10nm) DG MOSFETs is studied. Building on a previous 2D/1D model, we have included a more realistic band structure to describe the quantum transport. The empirical tight-binding Hamiltonian, rather than that based on effective mass theory, is used directly in the NEGF formalism. The nearest and second nearest neighbor coupling are taken into account to obtain an accurate Si band structure model. Use of the complex band structure causes the…

Quantum transport in double-gate MOSFETs with complex band structure
We have studied source-drain tunneling in double gate (DG) metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) scaled down to 10 nm channel lengths. The full complex band structure is used,
Gate length scaling and threshold voltage control of double-gate MOSFETs
In the nanoscale regime, the double-gate MOSFET can provide superior short-channel behavior. For this structure, device scaling issues are explored. Gate length scaling will be limited by the ability
Single and multiband modeling of quantum electron transport through layered semiconductor devices
Non-equilibrium Green function theory is formulated to meet the three main challenges of high bias quantum device modeling: self-consistent charging, incoherent and inelastic scattering, and band
The ballistic nanotransistor: a simulation study
The device design and physics issues of ballistic double-gate (DG) MOSFETs are explored using semiclassical and quantum simulations. We find that tunneling from source-to-drain increases the

Transmission resonances and zeros in multiband models.
It is demonstrated that for overlapping Fano resonances the zeros can move off of the real axis in complex conjugate pairs and this behavior is examined using a simple analytic model for multichannel scattering.
