Fundamentals of Current Flow
30 Jan 2022   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Everyone is familiar with the amazing performance of a modern smartphone, powered by a billionplus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. The same amazing technology has also led to a deeper understanding of the nature of current flow and heat...

OctopusPY: Tool for Calculating Effective Mass from Octopus DFT Bandstructures
16 Aug 2021   Contributor(s):: Olivia M. Pavlic, Austin D. Fatt, Gregory T. Forcherio, Timothy A. Morgan, Jonathan Schuster
OctopusPY is a Python package supporting manipulation and analytic processing of electronic band structure data generated by the density functional theory (DFT) software Octopus. In particular, this package imports Octopuscalculated band structure for a given material and...

Learning Module: Band Structure for Pure and Doped Silicon
10 Dec 2018   Contributor(s):: Peilin Liao
In this lab, students will learn to perform online density functional theory (DFT) simulations to compute band structures and density of states (DOS) for pure and doped Si using the DFT Material Properties Simulator available on nanoHUB. The students will work with crystalline pure and doped...

Using DFT to Simulate the Band Structure and Density of States of Crystalline Materials
23 Aug 2017   Contributor(s):: André Schleife, Materials Science and Engineering at Illinois
In this activity, DFT is used to simulate the band structure and density of states of several crystalline semiconductors. Users are instructed in how to use the Bilbao Crystallographic Server to select a path through the Brillouin zone for each structure. This activity is adapted from an...

Local density of states
09 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
The concept of general density of states (DOS) in devices is, by definition, spatially invariant. However, in the case of inhomogeneous materials or in quantum confined structures, the density of states can be resolved in space. This is known as local density of states, or LDOS. …

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 24: NEMO1D  Incoherent Scattering
02 Mar 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Incoherent processes due to phonons, interface roughness and disorder had been suspected to be the primary source of the valley current of resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs) at the beginning of the NEMO1D project in 1994. The modeling tool NEMO was created at Texas Instruments to fundamentally...
