Multiscale Modeling of GrapheneMetal Contacts
01 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: T. Cusati, Gianluca Fiori, A. Fortunelli, Giuseppe Iannaccone
IWCE 2015 presentation. The quality of contacts between metals and two dimensional materials is a critical aspect for the performance of transistors based on twodimensional materials. In this talk we focus on an approach to multiscale modeling of graphene metal contacts, considering both...

NEMO5 and 2D Materials: Tuning Bandstructures, Wave Functions and Electrostatic Screening
18 Oct 2016   Contributor(s):: Tillmann Christoph Kubis
In this talk, I will briefly discuss the MLWF approach and compare it to DFT and atomistic tight binding. Initial results using the MLWF approach for 2D material based devices will be discussed and compared to experiments. These results unveil systematic band structure changes as functions of...

Optical Absorption in B13 Cluster: A Timedependent Density Functional Approach
19 Feb 2013   Contributor(s):: Ravindra L Shinde, Meenakshi Tayade
The linear optical absorption spectra of three isomers of planar boron cluster B13 are calculated using time dependent spinpolarized density functional approach. The geometries of these cluster are optimized at the B3LYP/6311+G* level of theory. Even though the isomers are almost degenerate,...

Ripples and Warping of Graphene: A Theoretical Study
19 May 2010   Contributor(s):: Umesh V. Waghmare
We use firstprinciples density functional theory based analysis to understand formation of ripples in graphene and related 2D materials. For an infinite graphene, we show that ripples are linked with a low energy branch of phonons that exhibits quadratic dispersion at long wavelengths. Many...

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...
