$global-parameters

Global parameters are general parameters which are valid all over the device. See also $global-parameters in Keywords section.

$global-parameters                      required
 lattice-temperature        double      required
$end_global-parameters                  required

Lattice temperature

lattice-temperature
type

double

presence

required

unit

[K]

value

e.g. 300.0

Note

The band gaps, i.e. the conduction band edges, are adjusted when the temperature changes. This feature can be switched off.

See $numeric-control: varshni-parameters-on

In addition, the lattice constants depend on temperature. This can be switched off as well.

See $numeric-control: lattice-constants-temp-coeff-on
