A 2-D semianalytical solution for the electrostatic potential valid for junctionless symmetric double-gate field-effect transistors in subthreshold regime is proposed, which is based on the parabolic approximation for the potential and removes previous limitations. Based on such a solution, a semi-analytical expression for the current is derived. The potential and current models are validated through comparisons with TCAD simulations and are used to evaluate relevant short-channel effect parameters, such as threshold roll-off, drain-induced barrier lowering, and inverse subthreshold slope. The implications of different possible definitions of threshold voltage, either based on the potential in the channel or on a fixed current level, are discussed. Finally, a fully analytical simplification for the current is suggested, which can be used in compact models for circuit simulations.
