Colloquium: Metal-Insulator-Metal Device Physics Modeling

Monday, November 6, 2017 4:00 PM - 4:50 PM

John Wager, Professor, Michael and Judith Gaulke Endowed Chair
School of EECS, Oregon State University

Although it is not widely appreciated, optimal device physics modeling is ccomplished by strictly adhering to two fundamental laws,

  • *First Law*: Draw the energy band diagram,
  • *Second Law*: Formulate the equivalent circuit, and to one important model
  • development strategy,
  • *Strategy*: Keep the model as simple as possible.

Certain wags refer to this strategy using the disparaging acronym KISS, i.e., Keep it simple, stupid.”

The objective of this presentation is to demonstrate the utility and power of his formulation of device physics by discussing the modeling of a single set f measured current-voltage characteristics for one particular device, i.e., n Al-Al2O3-TaWSi amorphous metal MIM tunnel diode.
