Application of the Keldysh Formalism to Quantum Device Modeling and Analysis
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...

Atomistic Modeling of Nano Devices: From Qubits to Transistors
12 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Rajib Rahman
In this talk, I will describe such a framework that can capture complex interactions ranging from exchange and spin-orbit-valley coupling in spin qubits to non-equilibrium charge transport in tunneling transistors. I will show how atomistic full configuration interaction calculations of exchange...
Auger Generation as an Intrinsic Limit to Tunneling Field-Effect Transistor Performance
21 Sep 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jamie Teherani
Many in the microelectronics field view tunneling field-effect transistors (TFETs) as society’s best hope for achieving a > 10× power reduction for electronic devices; however, despite a decade of considerable worldwide research, experimental TFET results have significantly...
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 26: Life Beyond DFT -- Computational Methods for Electron Correlations, Excitations, and Tunneling Transport
16 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey B. Neaton
In this lecture, we provide a brief introduction to "beyond DFT" methods for studying excited state properties, optical properties, and transport properties. We discuss how the GW approximation to the self-energy corrects the quasiparticle excitations energies predicted by Kohn-Sham DFT. For...

Electron Transport in Schottky Barrier CNTFETs
24 Oct 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Bejenari
A given review describes models based on Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation, which are used to obtain I-V characteristics for ballistic CNTFETs with Schottky-Barrier (SB) contacts. The SB is supposed to be an exponentially or linearly decaying function along the channel. The ...

Lecture 3A: Spin Transport
20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To extend the model from Lectures 1 and 2 to include electron spin. Every electron is an elementary “magnet” with two states having opposite magnetic moments. Usually this has no major effect on device operation except to increase the conductance by a factor of two.But it is now...
