2.2 Problems and Demands on Three-Dimensional
Device Simulation

As shown before three-dimensional simulations can predict the behavior of devices more accurately than two-dimensional ones. Nevertheless, today more than 95% of all device simulations are two-dimensional ones. One reason for this is the lack of adequate and affordable simulation tools. Another issue is to handle three-dimensional data and the high computational costs.
