Simulating quantum dots (QDs) in a research & educational tool gives better insight on how they can be used. Building an educational research tool will assist in the development and understanding of QDs. Like the Quantum Dot Lab on nanoHUB.org (​https://nanohub.org/tools/qdot), this Jupyter notebook simulates 3D confined quantum dots using an array of changeable parameters.

This tool is being continually worked on. Currently, this tool only has a few parameters, but more will be added with time.

Quantum Dot Lab via Jupyter version 1.x ran NEMO-3D. Starting from version 2.0, the underlying engine is NEMO 5, a code under development in the research group of Gerhard Klimeck. NEMO 5 is an open source nanoelectronics device simulator containing a variety of different material and geometry models. Features include the construction of atomistic grids of varying crystal structures, multiband Schroedinger-Poisson simulations, and user-friendly input/output.
