  1. Geometric Multigrid for MHD Simulations with Nedelec Finite Elements on Tetrahedral Grids

    04 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Chris Hansen

    The Magneto-HydroDynamic (MHD) model is used extensively to simulate macroscopic plasma dynamics in Magnetic Confinement Fusion (MCF) devices. In these simulations, the span of time scales from fast wave dynamics to the desired evolution of equilibrium due to transport processes is large,...

  2. OOMMF: Object Oriented MicroMagnetic Framework

    21 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Joseph Donahue, Donald Gene Porter

    A portable, extensible public domain program and associated tools for micromagnetic simulation

  3. A UCSD analytic TFET model

    18 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Jianzhi Wu, Yuan Taur

    A continuous, analytic I-V model is developed for double-gate and nanowire tunnel FETs with 3D density of states, including depletion in the source. At the core of the model is a gate-controlled channel potential that satisfies the source and drain boundary conditions. Verified by...
