Research Group "Partial Differential Equations"

and "Weierstrass Group"

Semiconductor Seminar

The Semiconductor Seminar is a joint research seminar of the research group Partial Differential Equations and the Weierstrass Group, where current research and results from the areas electronics, optics, and mechanics of semiconductors is presented and discussed. We are interested in aspects of modeling, simulation and numerical analysis, and mathematical analysis of different relevant modeling systems on different scales.

    Boundary triplets, tensor products and point contacts to reservoirs (15 Uhr!)

    Abstract: We consider symmetric operators of the form S:=A⊗I_{\gotT} +I_{\gotH} ⊗T where A is symmetric and T = T* is (in general) unbounded. Such operators naturally arise in problems of simulating point contacts to reservoirs. We construct a boundary triplet Π_S for S* preserving the tensor structure. The corresponding γ-field and Weyl function are expressed by means of the γ-field and Weyl function corresponding to the boundary triplet Π_A for A* and the spectral measure of T. Applications to 1-D Schrödinger and Dirac operators are given. A model of electron transport through a quantum dot assisted by cavity photons is proposed. In this model the boundary operator is chosen to be the well-known Jaynes-Cumming operator which is regarded as the Hamiltonian of the quantum dot.

    Tunneling through periodic arrays of quantum dots and spectral problems

    Abstract: Periodic arrays of quantum dots in a constant magnetic field are considered. Two semi-infinite leads are attached to the system. We deal with tunneling through the system. Square and honeycomb lattices, single and double layers were investigated. Zero transmission for some values of the magnetic field is discussed.

    Lateral-Photovoltage-Scanning (LPS) - und Scanning-Photolumineszenz (SPL) - Methode

    Abstract: Widerstandsschwankungen in Si ,Ge oder Si_xGe_{1-x}-Wafern sind magebend fr die Qualitt des Wafers und definieren seine Zchtungsparameter. Eine Untersuchung der Schwankungen in der Dotierstoffkonzentration in Halbleitern ist mit der LPS-Methode zu erreichen. Die Simulationen zu der dargestellten Messmethode werden mit COMSOL Multiphysics durchgefhrt. Hierbei werden Finite-Volumen-Simulationen mit konstanten Ansatzfunktionen mithilfe Semiconductor-Modul kalkuliert. Als Dotierstoffschwankungen entlang der Probe wird ein Sinus vorgegeben. Die Generation von Elektron-Lochpaaren wird durch einen Laser mit konstanter Geschwindigkeit in der Halbleiterprobe verursacht. Die zeitabhngige Lsung dieses Problems wird mithilfe der van Roosbroeck Gleichung in den Variablen, Elektronen-, Lochdichte und elektrisches Potential, erreicht. Ziel der Simulationen ist zu untersuchen, ob eine lokale Bestimmung der Minorittsladungstrgerlebensdauer mithilfe der Phasenverschiebung zwischen Anregung und resultierender Spannung an den Probenenden mglich ist. Ebenfalls sollen Zusammenhnge mit der SPL-Methode, welche die lokale Lumineszenz aus den Rekombinationen der Elektronen-Loch-Paare bestimmt, analysiert werden.
