Modeling and parameter extraction of diodes and solar cells.

We review and scrutinize several methods used for extraction of diode and solar cell model parameters. In order to facilitate the choice of the most appropriate method for the given particular application, the methods are classified according to their lumped parameter equivalent circuit model: single exponential, double-exponential, multiple-exponential, with and without series and parallel resistances. The best method for any particular application depends on the appropriateness of the equivalent circuit used to model the real device. For example, multi-exponential models are needed when single-exponential equation is insufficient to model all significant conduction mechanisms observed in many real devices. Multi-exponential models have also been successfully used to describe post-breakdown current-voltage characteristics in MOSFETs. In general, we recommend methods based on many data points, using for example numerical integration or optimization, as a means to reduce the extraction uncertainties arising from measurement noise.


Adelmo Ortiz-Conde is currently a full Professor at Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB). He received the professional Electronics Engineer degree from Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB), Caracas, Venezuela, and the M.E. and Ph.D. from the University of Florida, Gainesville.

From 1979 to 1980, he served as an instructor in the Electronics Department at USB. In 1985, he joined the technical Staff of Bell Laboratories, Reading, PA, where he was engaged in the development of high voltage integrated circuits. Since 1987 he returned to the Electronics Department at USB where he was promoted to Full Professor in 1995.  He was on sabbatical leave at Florida International University (FIU), Miami, from September to December 1993, and at University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, from January to August 1994, and again from July to December 1998. He also was on sabbatical leave at “Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Avanzados” (CINVESTAV) National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), Mexico City, Mexico, from October 2000 to February 2001.

He has coauthored one textbook, Analysis and Design of MOSFETs: Modeling, Simulation and Parameter Extraction (2012 Springer reprint of the original 1st ed. 1998, ), over 160 international technical journal and conference articles (including 15 invited review articles). His present research interests include the modeling and parameter extraction of semiconductor devices.

Dr. Ortiz-Conde is an EDS Distinguished Lecturer and the Chair of IEEE’s CAS/ED Venezuelan Chapter. He was editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters, from 2009 to 2018, in the area of Silicon Devices and Technology. He was the Region 9 Editor of IEEE EDS Newsletter from 2000 to 2005. He is a Member of the Editorial Advisory Board of various technical journals: Microelectronics and Reliability, “Universidad Ciencia y Tecnología” and “Revista Ingeniería UC”. He regularly serves as reviewer of several international journals and he was the General Chairperson of the first IEEE International Caribbean Conference on Devices, Circuits, and Systems (ICCDCS) in 1995, Technical Chairperson of the second, fourth and fifth editions of this conference in 1998, 2002 and 2004 respectively, and the Chairperson of the Steering Committee in 2000.

Research on nano-semiconductor devices and its potential societal applications.

Fundamental research on physics of charge transport in semiconductor devices of different technologies (28 nm high-k, metal gate, and 14 nm FinFet’s) is introduced. The basic research is carried out with the purpose of understanding the physics behind reliability and electrical device degradation. However, some pieces of this fundamental research are also used for developing other applications beyond electronics, such as energy storage, water decontamination, bacteria detection, oil-industry sensors, and neurophysiology-monitoring systems, for instance. Under this approach, the INAOE advanced device electrical characterization laboratory, and the 0.8 μm CMOS fabrication pilot line, in conjunction with research done by different researchers and students, is launching a multidisciplinary project aimed at strengthening and extending the education and research on electron devices in Latin America.


Edmundo Gutiérrez got his PhD in 1993 from Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), while he was conducting research on low-temperature electronics at the Interuniversity MicroElectronics Center (IMEC) in Leuven, Belgium. He has been founder and Design Manager of the Motorola Mexico Center for Semiconductor Technology, and founder and Technical Director of the Intel Mexico System Research Center.

He has been Guest Professor at University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada), and Technical University Vienna (Austria). He has published more than 130 articles and conference proceedings on basic research of device charge transport physics, development of alternative device characterization techniques, and cryogenic electronics. He is co-author of the book “Low Temperature Electronics: Physics, Devices, Circuits, and Applications” (Academic Press, 2001), and Editor and co-author of “Nano-Scaled Semiconductor Devices: Physics, Modelling, Characterisation, and Societal Impact” (The IET Press, 2016).

Professor Gutiérrez is currently a Professor of the INAOE Electronics Department, IEEE-EDS Distinguished Lecturer, and Electron Device Letters Associate Editor.

On September 13, 2019, Prof. Gutiérrez was appointed General Director of the National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics, and Electronics (INAOE).
