This resource contains the universal behavior strain files produced by Nemo5. Attached also a Matlab script that can utilize the these compact descriptive files to produce the full strain distribution. Supported QD shapes; Cuboid, Dome, Cone, and Pyramid. Supported material systems;...

TE/TM polarisation response of InAs/GaAs quantum dot bilayers
22 Oct 2015   Contributor(s):: Muhammad Usman
Quantum dot bilayers are strong candidates for the design of telecom devices working at 1300 nm wavelength range. Here we analyse  both experimentally and theoretically  their optical and polarisation properties.

Why quantum dot simulation domain must contain multimillion atoms?
11 Jan 2013   Contributor(s):: Muhammad Usman
The InGaAs quantum dots obtained from the selfassembly growth process are heavily strained. The longrange strain and piezoelectric fields significantly modifies the electronic structure of the quantum dots. This imposes a critical constraint on the minimum size of the simulation domain to...

On the Two to Three Dimensional Growth Transition in Strained Silicon Germanium Thin Films
31 Jan 2012   Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk
Utilizing a model adapted from classical nucleation theory [8], we calculate a "critical thickness" for island formation, taking into account the surfaceenergies of the deposit and the substrate and the elastic modulus of the deposit, to which experimental results for CVD grown silicon germanium...
