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 nonequilibrium 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...

Modeling Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Transistors
27 Jun 2013   Contributor(s):: Ramesh Venugopal
As critical transistor dimensions scale below the 100 nm (nanoscale) regime, quantum mechanical effects begin to manifest themselves and affect important device performance metrics. Therefore, simulation tools which can be applied to design nanoscale transistors in the future, require new theory...

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 23: NEMO1D  Importance of New Boundary Conditions
02 Mar 2010   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 new boundary conditions are based on the partitioning of the device into emitter and collector...

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 24: NEMO1D  Incoherent Scattering
02 Mar 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
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 the NEMO1D project in 1994. The modeling tool NEMO was created at Texas Instruments to fundamentally...
