Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 23: NEMO1D - Importance of New Boundary Conditions
09 Mar 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
One of the key insights gained during the NEMO1D project was the development of new boundary conditions that enabled the modeling of realistically extended Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs). The...
Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 24: NEMO1D - Incoherent Scattering
Incoherent processes due to phonons, interface roughness and disorder had been suspected to be the primary source of the valley current of resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs) at the beginning of...
Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 25a: NEMO1D - Full Bandstructure Effects
07 Jul 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
(quantitative RTD modeling at room temperature)
Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 25b: NEMO1D - Hole Bandstructure in Quantum Wells and Hole Transport in RTDs
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...
Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 26: NEMO1D -
NEMO1D demonstrated the first industrial strength implementation of NEGF into a simulator that quantitatively simulated resonant tunneling diodes. The development of efficient algorithms that...
Resonant Tunneling Diode operation
22 Apr 2010 | Animations | Contributor(s): Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
A resonant tunneling diode (RTD) is a type of diode with a resonant tunneling structure that allows electrons to tunnel through various resonant states at certain energy levels. RTDs can be...
Tutorial 4: Far-From-Equilibrium Quantum Transport
29 Mar 2011 | Courses | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
These lectures focus on the application of the theories using the nanoelectronic modeling tools NEMO 1- D, NEMO 3-D, and OMEN to realistically extended devices. Topics to be covered are realistic...
