NEGF theory of quantum photovoltaic devices
22 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Urs Aeberhard
Many high-efficiency photovoltaics concepts require an advanced control and manipulation of the optoelectronic properties of the active device structure, leading to a prominent role of low dimensional absorbers such as quantum wells, wires and dots in the implementation of these concepts....
Tutorial 4b: Introduction to the NEMO3D Tool - Electronic Structure and Transport in 3D
29 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Electronic Structure and Transport in 3D - Quantum Dots, Nanowires and Ultra-Thin Body Transistors
Atomistic Modeling and Simulation Tools for Nanoelectronics and their Deployment on nanoHUB.org
16 Dec 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
At the nanometer scale the concepts of device and material meet and a new device is a new material and vice versa. While atomistic device representations are novel to device physicists, the semiconductor materials modeling community usually treats infinitely periodic structures. Two electronic...

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 25b: NEMO1D - Hole Bandstructure in Quantum Wells and Hole Transport in RTDs
09 Mar 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Heterostructures such as resonant tunneling diodes, quantum well photodetectors and lasers, and cascade lasers break the symmetry of the crystalline lattice. Such break in lattice symmetry causes a strong interaction of heavy-, light- and split-off hole bands. The bandstructure of holes and the...
ANGEL - A Nonequilibrium Green's Function Solver for LEDs
07 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: sebastian steiger
Introducing ANGEL, a Nonequilibrium Green’s Function code aimed at describing LEDs.ANGEL uses a description close to the classic NEMO-1D paper (Lake et al., JAP 81, 7845 (1997)) to model quantum transport in a light-emitting diode (LED).ANGEL is the first 1D-heterostructure NEGF to include the...
Notes on Scattering and Mobility in 1D, 2D, and 3D
06 Nov 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitri Nikonov, Md. Sayed Hasan, George Bourianoff
Derivation of the phonon-limited mobility is reviewed for electrons in bulk (3D) orquantum confined (2D and 1D) semiconductor structures. Analytical estimates are madethat show the mobility in quantum confined structures is, in general, lower or no higherthan in non-confined ones.
Comparison of PCPBT Lab and Periodic Potential Lab
10 Aug 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Samarth Agarwal, Gerhard Klimeck, Junzhe Geng
This small presentation provides information about the comparison performed for quantum wells made of GaAs and InAs in two different tools. This has been done to benchmark the results from completely two different sets of tools and validate the obtained results. In this presentation we provide...

Bound States Calculation Description
05 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
These lectures describe the calculation of the bound states in an infinite potential well, finite potential well and triangular well approximation. At the end, shooting method, that is used to numerically solve the 1D Schrodinger equation, is briefly described.visit www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF
From 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasi-bound states and if in the limit we have infinite periodic potential it leads to formation of energy bands. Notice that when the interaction is less strong the energy levels are more sharp and the...
