Calculation of doping concentration
« on: August 9, 2020, 10:17 »
Dear sir,
When we doped the nanoribbons then in the calculation of doping concentration we should take hydrogen atom into account or not?? Is the hydrogen atoms are only for avoiding the dangling bond or we should considered the concentration of hydrogen atoms while calculating the concentration.

In principle, it is up to you. I would probably avoid doping hydrogen atoms used for passivation of nanoribbon edges, as it looks a bit artificial.

Thanks for your reply

Sir, I have not doped the hydrogen atom. I have introduced doping in the middle of  the nanoribbon by replacing carbon atoms. Then I am calculating  doping concentration of dopant atoms. In this case, we should take hydrogen concentration into account or not?



Thanks in advance

I am not sure I fully understood your question. One may give doping concentration in charge per carbon atom. In this definition, there is no ambiguity. If one wants charge per area, then just compute the total charge in a 2D unit cell and divide by its area.
