In this paper we derive a new hybrid model for drift di usion equations. This model provides a description of the quantum phenomena in the parts of the device where they are relevant, and degenerates to a semiclassical model where quantum e ects are negligible, so that the system can be considered classically. The study of quantum correction to the equation of state of an electron gas in a semiconductor with the assumption of localized quantum e ects leads to a further condition on the classical-quantum interface. Moreover, we prove the existence of weak solutions for our hybrid model. Finally, we present numerical results for di erent devices, by means of Colsys software.
