Numerical modeling of highly doped Si:P emitters based on Fermi–Dirac statistics and self-consistent material parameters

Altermatt, Pietro P.; Schumacher, Jürgen O.; Cuevas, Andres; Kerr, Mark J.; Glunz, Stefan W.; King, Richard R.; Heiser, Gernot; Schenk, Andreas


We have established a simulation model for phosphorus-doped silicon emitters using Fermi–Dirac statistics. Our model is based on a set of independently measured material parameters and on quantum mechanical calculations. In contrast to commonly applied models, which use Boltzmann statistics and apparent band-gap narrowing data, we use Fermi–Dirac statistics and theoretically derived band shifts, and therefore we account for the degeneracy effects on a physically sounder basis. This leads to...[Show more]
