The noise phenomena of silicon nanowire transistors are investigated through quantum transport simulations. Under the assumption of phase-coherent transport, the scattering approach and the nonequilibrium Green’s function formalism are employed. We present the drain current and noise characteristics at various bias conditions and interpret these properties. We also present conditions for generating shot noise, which explains the bias dependence of shot noise suppression in silicon nanowire transistors.
