Parameters for this model are unitless. Parameters do not scale when changing Global Units.
Rho. Rho is the bulk resistivity of conductor metal normalized to gold, where Rho_Gold=2.44 x 10-8 Ω*m. So actual bulk resistivity of conductor metal is (Rho·2.44 x 10-8) Ω*m.
This element has a layout cell specifically for Analyst 3D EM layouts. See “Using 3D EM Elements ” for details on using 3D pCells with Analyst software.
