Abstract

Hydrodynamic model simulations of a steady-state electron shock wave in a 1-pm Si semiconductor device at 77 K are compared with a Monte Carlo simulation of the Boltzmann equation using the DAMOCLES program. Excellent agreement between the two different methods for simulating the electron shock wave can be obtained by adjusting the amount of heat conduction in the hydrodynamic model.
