Time-Dependent Solution of a Full Hydrodynamic Model Including Convective Terms and Viscous Effect


Sub-picosecond turn-on transient behavior of ballistic diodes (N+ - N - N+ structures) is studied by solving a system of time-dependent hydrodynamic (HD) equations. Convective terms as well as viscous effect are included in the study. The simulation result indicates that the diode undergoes approximately one quarter of a plasma oscillation before it relaxes to the steady-state value through collisions.
