Paper Abstract

Two-terminal heterostructure diodes present many potential opportunities for high frequency operation, even into the millimeter wave frequency regime. Motivated by this fact, we have developed an algorithm which is globally convergent for solving the nonlinear Poisson equation. By appropriate numerical techniques, the nonlinear Poisson equation is coupled to the current continuity equations which can then be employed for high frequency, small signal, ac simulations. Numerical results for the AlyGa1-yAs system with layers as thin as a few hundred angstroms in thickness are provided.
