Charge Transport in the Volume

  • Dietmar Schroeder
Part of the Computational Microelectronics book series (COMPUTATIONAL)


In this chapter we recall briefly the theory of electron transport in the bulk of the semiconductor. The idea is to give an overview of the hierarchy of the most important transport descriptions in the semiconductor volume. These are the equations to be solved in the material regions that are separated by the interfaces we want to consider. The structure of the volume transport equations and the charge transport mechanisms at the interfaces will then determine the conditions for connecting the volume solutions at the interfaces.
