Abstract

The use of a fast multipole method (FMM) approach for semiconductor transport simulations of the full Coulomb interaction in three dimensions was presented. The simulation times decreased significantly and effects due to electron-electron and electron-impurity interactions were also observed. The FMM was based on the idea of condensing the information of the potential generated by point sources in series expansions. The results show that FMM was easily included into existing Monte Carlo (MC) device simulation codes since the FMM algorithm operated independently of the grid used in the MC simulation.
