    MCT-SIMTM Device Simulation Software
MCT-SIMô: High-Performance Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) Device Simulator
MCT-SIM is a design tool for evaluating the performance of Mercury Cadmium Telluride (HgCdTe) diodes in photo-detection and imaging applications. MCT-SIM has been developed to help designers to simulate device performance prior to fabrication.

MCT-SIM obtains electrical and optical (photovoltaic) characteristics of HgCdTe based p-n junction devices (diodes and image sensors) exposed to Mid-wave and Long-wave Infrared (MWIR & LWIR) radiation.

MCT-SIM is the only device simulation tool that revolutionizes the design of MCT-based image sensors by bypassing and eliminating the need for cumbersome finite element software. MCT-SIM provides the ability to investigate the potential use of novel and new device structures for infrared imaging using HgCdTe material systems.

MCT-SIM provides highly accurate results in shorter computation times and simulation results have been verified with measured results of fabricated HgCdTe devices.

MCT-SIM is only available from Banpil.
