SyNumSeS is a Python package for numerical simulation of semiconductor devices. It uses the Scharfetter-Gummel discretization for solving the one dimensional Van Roosbroeck system which describes the free electron and hole transport by the drift-diffusion model. As boundary conditions voltages can be applied to Ohmic contacts. It is suited for the simulation of pn-diodes, MOS-diodes, LEDs (hetero junction), solar cells, and (hetero) bipolar transistors.
