NCN@Purdue Tool Support

We have identified a list of tools for which we commit the following level of service:

  • monitor support tickets, questions, and wishlists and provide a response within 24 hours.
  • fix simple bugs within a week.
  • move long term projects and tool improvement requests to a public wish list.

The overall support structure and philosophy of the NCN and nanoHUB is described in a different page.

NCN@Purdue Supported Educational Tools

NCN@Purdue Supported Research Tools

  • Abinit provides a simple interface to the very popular community-based electronic structure code.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Tool Improvement Wishlist

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.

Tool Desired feature
CNTbands Download atomic coordinates (rather than an image) (original question)
Bandstructure Lab Show “kx ky kz E” in final results (original question)
Bandstructure Lab Expand materials to include CdTe (original question)
Piecewise Constant Barrier Tool Vary effective masses along device (original question)
Crystal Viewer Tool View crystal planes and exposed surfaces (original question)
