Thermoelectric effects in semiconductor nanostructures: Role of electron and lattice properties
06 Oct 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Abhijeet Paul, Gerhard Klimeck
This presentation covers some aspects of present development in the field of thermoelectricity and focuses particularly on the silicon nanowires as potential thermoelectric materials. The electronic and phonon dispersions are calculated and used for the calculation of thermoelectric properties in these nanowires.
InAs: Evolution of iso-energy surfaces for heavy, light, and split-off holes due to uniaxial strain.
25 May 2010 | Animations | Contributor(s): Abhijeet Paul, Denis Areshkin, Gerhard Klimeck
Movie was generated using Band Structure Lab tool at nanoHUB and allows to scan over four parameters:
Hole energy measured from the top of the corresponding band (i.e. the origin of energy scales for LH and SOH is different)
Strain direction: , , 
Carrier type: LH, HH, SOH
Red lines indicate reciprocal half-vectors in  directions (L-points in Brillouin zone).
Scan proceeds as four nested cycles for the variables listed from left to right, i.e. the …

11 Feb 2010 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Abhijeet Paul, Ganesh Krishna Hegde, Ankit Jain, Fengyuan (Thomas) Li, Shuaib Salamat, Xufeng Wang, Insoo Woo, Robert Wortman, Min Xu, Ya Zhou
These are the presentations given by the students during the first 2010 event for NCN at Purdue. Students showcased a wide genre of research they are doing under the NCN. All the talks have been uploaded here for easy access.
Comparison of PCPBT Lab and Periodic Potential Lab
10 Aug 2009 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Abhijeet Paul, Samarth Agarwal, Gerhard Klimeck, Junzhe Geng
This small presentation provides information about the comparison performed for quantum wells made of GaAs and InAs in two different tools. This has been done to benchmark the results from completely two different sets of tools and validate the obtained results. In this presentation we provide the motivation for this work, the input details and results obtained. The tools used for this purpose are Piecewise Constant Potential Barrier Tool(PCPBT) and Periodic Potential Lab. We provide ...
