Abstract

Electronic noise in two-terminal semiconductor devices is investigated by an original Monte Carlo procedure which provides a spatial map of voltage fluctuations in the structures. Voltage-noise operation is employed. The results obtained for submicron n + nn + structures and Schottky-barrier diodes show that the high-resistivity regions are responsible for the low-frequency noise, while the low-resistivity regions mostly contribute to the noise at the highest frequencies.
