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 one business day.
  • 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.
