Electronic Structure and Transport Properties of Graphene on Hexagonal Boron Nitride
06 Dec 2018 | Contributor(s):: Shukai Yao, Luis Regalado Bermejo, Alejandro Strachan
Graphene is a zero-bandgap conductor with high carrier mobility. It is desired to search for an opening of band structure of graphene such that this kind of material can be applied in electronic devices. Depositing hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) opens a bandgap in the band structure of...
Computational Catalysis with Density Functional Theory
08 Aug 2018 | Contributor(s):: Kevin Greenman, Peilin Liao
Heterogeneous catalysis is used in a significant portion of production processes in the industrialized world, which makes maximizing the efficiency of catalysts a high priority. However, the immense number of candidates for new catalysts precludes the possibility of testing all of them by...

Tight Binding Parameters by DFT mapping
12 Sep 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Yaohua Tan, Michael Povolotskyi, Tillmann Christoph Kubis, Yu He, Zhengping Jiang, Timothy Boykin, Gerhard Klimeck
The Empirical Tight Binding(ETB) method is widely used in atomistic device simulations. The reliability of such simulations depends very strongly on the choice of basis sets and the ETB parameters. The traditional way of obtaining the ETB parameters is by fitting to experiment data,or critical...
