    Simulation of metal-oxide metal oxide metal diode

    Can someone tell me how can i simulate the quantum tunneling effect in metal oxide metal (MOM or MIM) diodes?

    I am thinking about using a microwave based software like CST microwave or ADS to get the electrical fields and subsequently importing them into Matlab to calculate the current density and plot the IV- curve. Don't know if it will work.

    Or is there a direct way that how can i simulate MOM or a tunnel diode which also have similar behaviour. which models should i use to simultae these diodes.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: Simulation of metal-oxide metal oxide metal diode

    i suggest the best simulation depends on the fabrication parameters used and entered into COMSUL. Wide variations in fabrication molecular ingedients and lower than bulk permitivity is to be expected.

    Re: Simulation of metal-oxide metal oxide metal diode

    Falstad's animated simulator supports a tunnel diode, with these circuits in the menu:

    * I/V curve
    * LC oscillator
    * Relaxation oscillator

    www.falstad.com/circuit

    Free to download and use. Or, run it online and choose from the listed circuits.

    Look in the menu for Misc. Devices > tunnel diode.

    You need to have Java installed on your computer.
