Simulation of Quantum Electronic Transport in Small Devices: A Master Equation Approach

We describe a formulation of quantum electron transport in small devices based on the Master equation. We sketch its derivation from the Liouville-von Neumann equation, especially alluding to the subtle issues related to irreversibility. We also present results regarding ballistic and dissipative transport in double gate Si FETs.
