Semiclassical limit in a simplified quantum energy-transport model for semiconductors

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The semiclassical limit in a quantum energy-transport model for semiconductors is proved. The system consists of a nonlinear parabolic fourth-order equation for the electron density, including temperature gradients; a degenerate elliptic heat equation for the electron temperature; and the Poisson equation for the electric potential. The equations are solved in a bounded domain with periodic boundary conditions. The asymptotic limit is based on a priori estimates independent of the scaled Planck constant, obtained from entropy functionals, on the use of Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequalities, and weak compactness methods.
