Band Structure 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 …
As explained in a related seminar, correct band structure is essential for modeling devices at the nano scale.

Bandstructure Lab is based on the tight binding model of Boykin and Klimeck, and builds on the work of several Ph.D. students and other researchers:
|M. Luisier, N. Neophytou, Y. Liu||... Core simulator|
|J. Wang||... Nanowire simulation theory|
|A. Rahman||... Bulk and thin-film simulation theory|
|A. Amatsuda, M. McLennan||... GUI development|
|R. Kim||... Led the integration effort|
Researchers should cite this work as follows:
