In this poster, we present a Hybrid Finite Volumes scheme to discretise semiconductors models. This type of finite volumes scheme [1] is devised to handle general polygonal/polyhedral meshes, alongside with anisotropic diffusion tensors. Especially, the scheme introduced here can be used in situations where the semiconductor is immersed in a magnetic field [2].
The scheme is based on the nonlinear discretisation introduced in [3], and its analysis relies on the preservation of a discrete entropy structure, which mimics the continuous behaviour of the system. Especially, the scheme is asymptotic preserving in long-time.
Numerical experiments will highlight the main properties of the scheme.
Work in collaboration with Claire Chainais-Hillairet, Maxime Herda and Simon Lemaire.
