Solving the transport equation for a long-channel CNTFET at ambipolar regime. A quantum treatment is used to compute the currents through the Schottky barriers at the ends of the channel. A semiclassical drift-diffusion treatment is used to describe carrier transport in the long channel, along with a band-to-band recombination process to describe infrared emission.

Band profile and charge density in a CNTFET with a channel length . (a) The conduction and valence bands vs the channel position at and . The solid lines are the self-consistent solution, and the dashed lines are the Laplace solution (which omits charge in the channel). (b) Hole density (with a peak value near the source) and electron density (with a peak value near the drain) vs the channel position for two bias conditions. The solid lines are for , , and the dashed lines are for , .
