Observation of Anomalous Negative Differential Resistance in Diode Breakdown Simulation Using Carrier Temperature Dependent Impact Ionization
When carrier temperatures are used to model impact ionization with self-consistent cooling effects, anomalous negative differential resistance (NDR) was found in diode breakdown simulation. Possible mechanisms responsible for the NDR are analyzed.
