Computer analysis of geometry and strain effects in silicon nano-crystal floating-gate flash memory devices

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Computer analysis of nanocrystal memory transistors based on floating gate technology was carried out. Quantization of electronic structure and single-electron charging of nanocrystals was investigated. Effects of geometry and strain due to lattice mismatch on nanocrystals were studied. The device was simulated using Schrodinger and Poisson equations.
