Scattering is a general physical process where some forms of radiation, such as light, sound, or moving particles, are forced to deviate from a straight trajectory by one or more localized non-uniformities in the medium through which they pass. In conventional use, this also includes deviation of reflected radiation from the angle predicted by the law of reflection. Reflections that undergo scattering are often called diffuse reflections and unscattered reflections are called specular(mirror-like) reflections.

ANGEL - A Nonequilibrium Green Function Solver for LEDs
18 Jan 2010 | | Contributor(s):: sebastian steiger
An MPI-parallelized implementation of 1-D NEGF for heterostructures. Includes off-diagonal scattering. Effective mass band structure for electrons and holes. The online tool only provides basic NEGF functionality without scattering.
ANGEL - A Nonequilibrium Green's Function Solver for LEDs
06 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...
Application of the Keldysh Formalism to Quantum Device Modeling and Analysis
out of 5 stars
14 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Roger Lake
The effect of inelastic scattering on quantum electron transport through layered semi-conductor structures is studied numerically using the approach based on the non-equilibrium Green's function formalism of Keldysh, Kadanoff, and Baym. The Markov assumption is not made, and the energy coordinate...

Computer Graphics Imagery for Motion Pictures and Commercial Advertising: The Achievement of Highly-Realistic Images
30 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Kenneth Torrance
The talk will review some of the underlying concepts from Radiation Heat Transfer that have now been implemented in synthetic images. In many cases, researchers in graphics have created algorithms that are many times faster and more detailed than the engineering algorithms from which they were...

Dissipative Quantum Transport in Semiconductor Nanostructures
23 Dec 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Greck
In this work, we investigate dissipative quantum transport properties of an open system. After presenting the background of ballistic quantum transport calculations, a simple scattering mechanism, called Büttiker Probes, is introduced. Then, we assess the properties of the Büttiker Probe model...
