Running gpvdm

On both windows and linux gpvdm will install on the start menu, click on it to launch it. Once run, a window resembling that in figure 1 will appear. From the left, the first three icons on the toolbar, open a simulation, save a simulation and generate a new simulation. Once you have made a new simulation, the the play button will run it, and the stop button will stop the simulation running. You will find more video examples describing how to use the model throughout the gpvdm web page.

Each set of model parameters is displayed in an individual simulation tab. For example the tab 'DoS layer' contains the material parameters for material layer 0. These include mobility, recombination cross sections, tail slopes and band gaps. The 'device' tab is used to set information about the device, such as shunt resistance, series resistance and density of electrons/holes on the contacts.
