A method for handling the non-homogeneous terms occurring in the method of moments formulation of the Poisson equation is proposed. The algorithm is based on using the Fourier series expansions for solving the general two-dimensional Poisson equation without the need for either domain discretization nor Monte Cario integration techniques. The convergence of the present method is studied and improved by using the ε-algorithm. Application of this method to the determination of the depletion layer profile is presented along with several other engineering problems. The results are compared with solutions available in the literature.
