Rigorous Theory and Simplified Model of the Band-to-band Tunneling in Silicon

  title={Rigorous Theory and Simplified Model of the Band-to-band Tunneling in Silicon},
  author={Andreas Schenk},
-The phonon-assisted band-to-band tunneling rate in crystalline silicon is calculated using the equilibrium Green's function formalism. Electron-phonon collisions, that balance the momentum, are included in the perturbation operator. Houston-type solutions are used for the time dependence of the Bloch states. RPA deeoupling yields a tractable expression for the differential tunneling conductivity. Its evaluation is presented explicitly, taking exactly into account the anisotropy of the six… CONTINUE READING
