Computes the electronic structure of various materials in the spatial configuration of bulk (infinitely periodic), quantum wells (confined in one dimension, infinitely periodic in 2 dimensions), and wires (confined in 2 dimensions and infinitely...

- bulk effective mass table is not correct for light, and heavy hole bands
- charge self-consistent calculation appears to be unstable for some devices
- nanowire dimensions exceeding 5-6nm in diameter appear to crash the simulations. More work is needed in the tool
Bandstructure Lab is based on the tight binding model of Boykin and Klimeck, and builds on the work of several Ph.D. students and other researchers:
|M. Luisier, A. Paul||... Core C simulator, beginning with Version 2.0|
|A. Paul||... GUI development and OMEN integration of version 2.0|
|M. Luisier, N. Neophytou, Y. Liu||... Core Matlab simulator, prior to Version 2.0|
|A. Matsudaira, M. McLennan||... GUI development of version 1.0|
|R. Kim||... Led the integration effort of Version 1.0|
|J. Wang, N. Neophytou||... Nanowire simulation theory|
|A. Rahman||... Bulk and thin-film simulation theory|
