    Abstract

    © 2002, Kluwer Academic Publishers. Noise properties in nanoscale devices are studied extending, via quantum trajectories, the classical particle Monte Carlo techniques to devices in which quantum non-local effects are important. This approach can be used to study noise in a wide range of frequencies and can also be easily coupled to a Poisson solver to study long range Coulomb effects in noise characteristics. As a numerical example, we have studied noise in a tunneling barrier showing that the results obtained within our approach exactly reproduce those of the standard Landauer-Buttiker formalism in the zero frequency limit.
