Topics: Quantum effects in microelectronic devices such as tunneling and energy quantizationDue to continuous down-scaling of microelectronic devices, critical dimensions are comparable to the electron wavelength and quantum mechanical effects have to be included in the description of the devices' functionalities. Quantum effects in microelectronic devices that play an important role are:
- Tunneling through insulating layers
- Energy quantization due to small potential wells.
