Abstract : Quantum semiconductor devices are playing an increasingly important role in advanced microelectronic applications, including multiple state logic and memory devices. To model quantum devices, the classical hydrodynamic model for semiconductor devices can be extended to include O(h-sq) quantum corrections. This proposal focused on theoretical and computational investigations of the flow of electrons in semiconductor devices based on the quantum hydrodynamic model. The development of efficient, rebute numerical methods for the QHD model in one and two spatial dimensions wa also emphasized.
