The hot carrier light emission in SOI (silicon-on-insulation)-MOSFETs is analyzed by using a recently developed two-dimensional device simulator. A novel calculation algorithm of coupled Monte Carlo-energy transport analysis is used to obtain the spatial carrier temperature distribution and the carrier energy distribution at a fast computation turn-around time. The relations between the hot carrier effects and the photon emission properties are easily evaluated by using this simulator. The simulation results show excellent agreement with experimental results. It was found from the comparisons between the simulated results and the experimental ones that the hot carrier energy distribution cannot be described by the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution in the higher energy part.
