3D Quantum Transport Modeling (MIND Review: Bandtobandtunneling transistors status report August 2010)
14 Jan 2014  Presentation Materials  Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck, Mathieu Luisier
This presentation provides an overview of the OMEN transport capabilities for Band to band tunneling field effect transistors (TFETs) as of August 2010. The material was presented originally at the MIND review at Notre Dame on Aug. 17, 2010. The presentation motivates the work on the U.S. Patent 12858465 "Tunneling fieldeffect transistor with low leakage current" by Mathieu Luisier, Samarth Agarwal, Gerhard Klimeck. Specifically the presentation shows that thick body TFETs loose gate …

3D wavefunctions
12 Apr 2010  Animations  Contributor(s): Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
In quantum mechanics the timeindependent Schrodinger's equation can be solved for eigenfunctions (also called eigenstates or wavefunctions) and corresponding eigenenergies (or energy levels) for a stationary physical system. The wavefunction itself can take on negative and positive values and could be complex.
The square magnitude of the wavefunction is the probability density of finding the particle in space at that particular energy level.
A quantum dot is a physical system that …

ABACUS Exercise: Bandstructure – KronigPenney Model and TightBinding Exercise
20 Jul 2010  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The objective of this exercise is to start with the simple KronigPenney model and understand formations of bands and gaps in the dispersion relation that describes the motion of carriers in 1D periodic potentials. The second exercise examines the behavior of the bands at the Brillouin zone boundaries. Finally, a simplified tightbinding approach for 1D lattice has to be derived as part of the third exercise..
