Quantitative Modeling and Simulation of Quantum Dots
18 Apr 2011 | Notes | Contributor(s): Muhammad Usman
Quantum dots grown by self-assembly process are typically constructed by 50,000 to 5,000,000 structural atoms which confine a small, countable number of extra electrons or holes in a space that is comparable in size to the electron wavelength. Under such conditions quantum dots can be interpreted …

A 20nm wide and 5nm high dome shaped InAs quantum dot grown on GaAs and embedded in InAlAs is visualized.
Atomistic Simulation of Realistically Sized Nanodevices Using NEMO 3-D—Part II: Applications
14 Jan 2008 | Publications | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck, Shaikh S. Ahmed, Neerav Kharche, Marek Korkusinski, Muhammad Usman, marta prada, Timothy Boykin
In part I, the development and deployment of a general nanoelectronic modeling tool (NEMO 3-D) has been discussed. Based on the atomistic valence-force field and the sp3d5s* nearest neighbor tight-binding models, NEMO 3-D enables the computation of strain and electronic structure in nanostructures …
Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 32: Strain Layer Design through Quantum Dot TCAD
07 Jul 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck, Muhammad Usman
This presentation demonstrates the utilization of NEMO3D to understand complex experimental data of embedded InAs quantum dots that are selectively overgrown with a strain reducing InGaAs layer. Different alloy concentrations of the strain layer tune the optical emission and absorption wavelength …
NEMO3D User Guide for Quantum Dot Simulations
29 Nov 2011 | Publications | Contributor(s): M. Usman, Gerhard Klimeck
NEMO 3D is a large and complex simulator; and understanding of its source code requires considerable knowledge of quantum mechanics, condensed matter theory, and parallel programming.
