4 === NCN@Purdue Tool Support ===
6 We have identified a list of tools for which we commit the following level of service:
7 * monitor support tickets, questions, and wishlists and provide a response within one business day.
8 * fix simple bugs within a week.
9 * move long term projects and tool improvement requests to a public wish list.
10 The overall support structure and philosophy of the NCN and nanoHUB is [/topics/NCNSupportedTools described in a different page].
12 === NCN@Purdue Supported Educational Tools===
14 * [/tools/abacus ABACUS] is our "Assembly of Basic Applications for Coordinated Understanding of Semiconductors" consistent of 10 different tools supported by [/topics/edusemiconductor Introduction to Semiconductor Devices] that provides tool overviews, and homework and project assignments for each of the covered concepts. All the tools in ABACUS are fully supported ([[Resource(crystal_viewer)]], [[Resource(pcpbt)]], [[Resource(kronig_penney)]], [[Resource(bandstrlab)]], [[Resource(fermi)]], [[Resource(semi)]], [[Resource(pntoy)]], [[Resource(bjt)]], [[Resource(moscap)]], and [[Resource(mosfet)]] ).
15 * [/tools/qdot Quantum Dot Lab] enables users to study quantum dots in a simple effective mass model. The tools is powered by [ NEMO 3-D] which can handle multimillion atom electronic structure calculations in full band models, rather than just effective mass models.
16 * [/resources/1838 CNTbands] enables the analysis of electronic structures and Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene.
17 * [/tools/rtdnegf Resonant Tunneling Diode Lab] enables the study of resonance tunneling diodes with the [/topics/negf NEGF] formalism. This tool has some of the [ NEMO 1-D] capabilities, yet it is currently limited to effective mass models.
19 === NCN@Purdue Supported Research Tools===
21 * [/tools/abinit Abinit] provides a simple interface to the very popular community-based electronic structure code.
22 * [/tools/bandstrlab Bandstructure Lab] Computes the electronic structure of various materials in the spatial configuration of bulk (infinitely periodic), quantum wells (confined in one dimension, infinitely periodic in 2 dimensions), and wires (confined in 2 dimensions and infinitely periodic in the third dimension). The tool is powered by [ OMEN], one of our NCN@Purdue tool intitiatives which create new advanced research tools.
23 * [/tools/omenwire OMEN nanowire] Simulate full-band 3D, real-space quantum transport in nanowire structures. The tool is powered by [ OMEN], one of our NCN@Purdue tool intitiatives which create new advanced research tools.
26 === Links to: Tools, Questions and Answers, and Wishlists ===
27 User due post questions or send support tickets where they essentially ask for new features in tools or suggest improvements. With the limited resources we have available we want to manage these tool suggestions publicly. Eventually we believe that each tool will have its own "Wishlist". For now we summarize the tool improvment wishes here.
