Insulator Boundaries

This kind of boundary is considered as a "mirror boundary". This means that when a particle interact with such a contact it will simply be reflected by this one. This is necessitated when you want to simulate, for example, the insulator boundaries of a device. Furthermore, you can apply a non-zero potential on a boundary even if this is an insulator edge. This will be explained further in the paragraph concerning the keyword CONTACT.
