We present a thermodynamic approach to introducing quantum corrections to the classical transport picture in semiconductor device simulation. The approach leads to a modified Boltzmann equation with an effective quantum potential. We study the quantum interaction of electrons with a gate oxide barrier potential in a 25 nm MOSFET.
