Ohmic Contacts

Ohmic contacts are contacts which are open, i.e. particles can both go out from or enter in the device trough it, but also contacts which hold the neutrality charge condition, i.e. the charge have to be assigned constant on it. Thus we can be think of ohmic contacts as electron reservoirs from which the particles can go out from the device.
