The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.

Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. To download the MPH-files, log in or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.

Self-Consistent Schrödinger-Poisson Results for a GaAs Nanowire

This benchmark model simulates a GaAs nanowire using the self-consistent Schrödinger-Poisson theory to compute the electron density and the confining potential profiles. The predefined Schrödinger-Poisson multiphysics coupling feature is combined with the dedicated Schrödinger-Poisson ... Read More

MOSFET with Mobility Models

This model shows how to add several linked mobility models to the simple MOSFET example. Read More

Surface Trapping in a Silicon Nanowire Gate-All-Around Device

A gate-all-around MOSFET consists of a nanowire with a gate electrode wrapped around the circumference. Since the entire nanowire forms the channel, this configuration provides the best possible electrostatic control of the channel and offers a good candidate for the miniaturization of ... Read More

Programming of a Floating Gate EEPROM Device

This model calculates the current and charge characteristics of a floating gate Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM) device. A stationary study demonstrates the effects of varying the charge stored on the floating gate by computing Current-Voltage curves as a ... Read More

Small Signal Analysis of a MOSFET

This model shows how to compute the AC characteristics of a MOSFET. Both the output conductance and the transconductance are computed as a function of the drain current. Read More

DC Characteristics of a MESFET

In a MESFET, the gate forms a rectifying junction that controls the opening of the channel by varying the depletion width of the junction. In this model we simulate the response of a n-doped GaAs MESFET to different drain and gate voltages. For a n-doped material the electron ... Read More

MOSCAP 1D Small Signal

The metal-silicon-oxide (MOS) structure is the fundamental building block for many silicon planar devices. Its capacitance measurements provide a wealth of insight into the working principles of such devices. This tutorial constructs a simple 1D model of a MOS capacitor (MOSCAP). Both ... Read More

Interface Trapping Effects of A MOSCAP

This tutorial compares experimental data from the literature with a COMSOL model of a MOSCAP with interface traps (surface states). The Trap-Assisted Surface Recombination feature is used to simulate the effects of the trap charges and the processes of carrier capturing and emitting by ... Read More

Reverse Recovery of a PIN Diode

This tutorial simulates the turn-off transient (reverse recovery) of a simple PIN diode with an inductive load, loosely based on the book "Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices" by B. J. Baliga (p. 256, 2008 edition). Unlike the book, which assumes an initial constant current ramp ... Read More

Caughey-Thomas Mobility

With an increase in the parallel component of the applied field, carriers can gain energies above the ambient thermal energy and be able to transfer energy gained by the field to the lattice by optical phonon emission. The latter effect leads to a saturation of the carriers mobility. The ... Read More
