A diamond based insulated gate bipolar transistor is incorporated into a two -dimensional device simulator (MEDICI) to examine the current gain (β) and potential distribution across the device. Initially, work has focused on an important component of IGBT structure, the PNP bipolar transistor, which has been simulated and is reported upon in this paper. Empirical parameters for emitter and collector regions were used. Various carrier concentrations for base region were used to optimize the simulation. It was found that decreasing the thickness of base region leads to an increase in current gain. A buffer layer is needed to prevent the punch-through at low carrier concentration in the base region. Various approaches of increasing the current gain are also discussed in this paper.
