Uniaxial Strain is Scaled from Entered Value
Very nice tool!
I’m trying to calculate band structure in Si with unaxially applied strain in the < 100> direction.
Tool version 2.06.
On the “Analysis” page of the tool:
Select numerical simulation: “Strain Analysis”
Strain Model: “Uniaxial”
Strain Direction: “001“
Initial Strain (Exx): “-0.01”
Final Strain (Exx): “0.01”
Number of Points: 21
On the simulate page, when I plot something such as Bandgap vs Strain, I only see data for Strain from -0.0028 to 0.0028. I do see 21 points of data.
Why is the strain being scaled from 0.01% strain to 0.0028% strain?
