- Project description:
An important aspect concerning the development of new semiconductor structures within nanotechnology and microsystems technology is the progressing miniaturization of the structures on the one hand and the increasing of the working frequencies on the other hand.
Nano scale structures might require the observance of quantum effects and the high density of electric conductors induces parasitics (e.g. crosstalk). In order to involve these effects already in the design stage, exact knowledge of the semiconductor structures and the surrounding electromagnetic (EM) field is necessary. Another effect, which plays a no longer negligible role are the variations of the feature structure size caused by inaccuracies of the resolution during the lithography. To consider these variations in the simulation, models with parametric uncertainties are required. Simulations of new micro and nano scale systems are essential because of the expensive production of prototypes. In order to be able to do these simulations in acceptable computing time, a model order reduction (MOR) of the used models is necessary.
