Paper Abstract

A Monte Carlo program for simulating multiple quantum well and superlattice IR detectors is described. The model is quasi-2D and uses an effective mass approximation for the superlattice minibands. These approximations make it possible to run the program with the computing power of a workstation. The average velocity of the electrons is computed as function of the bias voltage.
