How Can I Re-Use Individual Monte-Carlo 3D Implant Profiles?

It is often the case that a design of experiments (DOE) is required to optimize the performance of a particular device.  Sometimes this simply means tweaking the implant dose for threshold voltage or other minor adjustments, but in other cases it can mean tweaking such things as high energy deep well implants.

When using very high energy implants, on large structures the task of repeating Monte-Carlo simulations can take many hours, even when utilizing a high number of parallel threads. If the structure has not physically changed, a very useful feature is the ability to reload previously simulated individual 3D monte-carlo implant profiles, as this only takes a few seconds rather than several hours. The implant dose and damage can also be scaled by a factor, if that particular implant dose was part of the optimization procedure.
