Progress in technology has brought microelectronics to the nanoscale, but nanoelectronics is not yet a well-defined engineering discipline with a coherent, experimentally verified, theoretical framework. The NCN has a vision for a new, 'bottom-up' approach to electronics, which involves: understanding electronic conduction at the atomistic level; formulating new simulation techniques; developing a new generation of software tools; and bringing this new understanding and perspective into the classroom. We address problems in atomistic phenomena, quantum transport, percolative transport in inhomogeneous media, reliability, and the connection of nanoelectronics to new problems such as biology, medicine, and energy. We work closely with experimentalists to understand nanoscale phenomena and to explore new device concepts. In the course of this work, we produce open source software tools and educational resources that we share with the community through the nanoHUB.
This page is a starting point for nanoHUB users interested in nanoelectronics. It lists key resources developed by the NCN Nanoelectronics team. The nanoHUB contains many more resources for nanoelectronics, and they can be located with the nanoHUB search function. To find all nanoelectronics resources, search for 'nanoelectronics.' To find those contributed by the NCN nanoelectronics team, search for 'NCNnanoelectronics.'

ECE 539 Report: Study of two-dimensional Shrodinger-Poisson Solver
14 May 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Fawad Hassan
We solve the 2-Dimensional Shrodinger-Poisson system of equations using a self consistent scheme (like Gummel Iteration). We study a double gate Silicon Mosfet oriented in the 100 direction using the above setup. We assume a simple 6-valley bandstructure for Silicon.
Empirical Tight-binding Parameterization of SmSe in the sp3d5f7s* model
26 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Zhengping Jiang, Marcelo Kuroda, Yaohua Tan, Dennis M. Newns, Michael Povolotskyi, Timothy Boykin, Tillmann Christoph Kubis, Gerhard Klimeck, Glenn J. Martyna
The Empirical Tight Binding(ETB) method is widely used in atomistic device simulations. The reliability of such simulations depends very strongly on the choice of basis sets and the ETB parameters.The Piezoelectronic Transistor (PET) has been proposed as a post-CMOS device for fast, low-power...

09 Mar 2005 |
FETToy 2.0 is a set of Matlab scripts that calculate the ballistic I-V characteristics for a conventional MOSFETs, Nanowire MOSFETs and Carbon NanoTube MOSFETs. For conventional MOSFETs, FETToy assumes either a single or double gate geometry and for a nanowire and nanotube MOSFETs it assumes a...
Inelastic Scattering in NEGF: Matlab Implementation and Exercises
31 Dec 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Samiran Ganguly, Supriyo Datta
A set of Matlab scripts has been developed illustrating the treatment of inelastic scattering in non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) based quantum transport models. The first script highlights the core principles using a simple conductor described by a (2x2) Hamiltonian matrix, while the...

Tinker with quantum transport models! Download the MATLAB scripts used to demonstrate the physics described in Supriyo Datta's book Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor. These simple models are less than a page of code, and yet they reproduce much of the fundamental physics observed in...
MOSCNT: code for carbon nanotube transistor simulation
14 Nov 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Siyu Koswatta, Jing Guo, Dmitri Nikonov
Ballistic transport in carbon nanotube metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (CNT-MOSFETs) is simulated using the Non-equilibrium Green’s function formalism. A cylindrical transistor geometry with wrapped-around gate and doped source/drain regions are assumed. It should be noted that...

22 Feb 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Zhibin Ren, Sebastien Goasguen
NanoMOS is a 2-D simulator for thin body (less than 5 nm), fully depleted, double-gated n-MOSFETs. A choice of five transport models is available (drift-diffusion, classical ballistic, energy transport, quantum ballistic, and quantum diffusive). The transport models treat quantum effects in the...
NanoV: Nanowire-based VLSI Design
06 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: muzaffer simsir
In the coming decade, CMOS technology is expected to approach its scaling limitations. Among the proposed nanotechnologies, nanowires have the edge in the size of circuits and logic arrays that have already been fabricated and experimentally evaluated. For this technology, logic-level design...
