Paper Abstract

Nano-structures are increasingly finding more applications in modern electronic/photonic devices. However, an accurate prediction of the nano-device performance is complicated by carrier localization and, in certain applications, the presence of an applied magnetic field. Shot noise measurements are suggested as a means to quantify localization. An alternative technique using tunneling time to characterize localization in nano-structures in the presence of random elastic and inelastic scattering is presented. The treatment is extended to include the effect of magnetic fields. The calculations are carried out self-consistently by solving Schroedinger and Poisson's equations for the accurate determination of the developed space charge.
