A simple linear search technique is described which seeks to minimise the fraction of electron free-flights terminating in self-scattering events during Monte Carlo simulation of carrier transport in semiconductors. For a given simulation problem, this search technique reduces the required CPU time by at least a factor of four to six when compared with established techniques.
