Paper Abstract

We discuss the use of ensemble Monte Carlo techniques for the simulation of some opto-electronic devices. This approach has been reasonably successful for device simulation, and the Monte Carlo approach has worked very well for sub-picosecond time scales, but computational time becomes excessive for multi-picosecond simulations. Various nonlinear effects such as carrier-carrier scattering, non- equilibrium phonons, quantization in low-dimensional systems, and finite collision duration have all successfully been incorporated into the Monte Carlo method.
