Anisotropic Schrödinger Equation Quantum Corrections for 3D Monte Carlo Simulations of Nanoscale Multigate Transistors
05 Jan 2016   Contributor(s):: Karol Kalna, Muhammad Ali A. Elmessary, Daniel Nagy, Manuel Aldegunde
IWCE 2015 presentation. We incorporated anisotropic 2D Schrodinger equation based quantum corrections (SEQC) that depends on valley orientation into a 3D Finite Element (FE) Monte Carlo (MC) simulation toolbox. The MC toolbox was tested against experimental IDVG characteristics of the 22 nm...

Atomistic Modeling: Past, Present, and Future, MGI, ICME, etc.
03 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Paul Saxe
I will present a perspective on atomistic modeling — tools using quantum methods such as DFT, as well as molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods based on forcefields — over the past 30 years or so. While we are all caught up in the present, it is important to remember and realize...

Discussion about Ion Channels Using Reduced Model Approaches
21 Sep 2011   Contributor(s):: James Fonseca
The seminar will cover the reasons how the channels are able to selectively permit the flow of certain species of ions while blocking other physiological cations.

High Dimensional Uncertainty Quantification via Multilevel Monte Carlo
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Hillary Fairbanks
Multilevel Monte Carlo (MLMC) has been shown to be a cost effective way to compute moments of desired quantities of interest in stochastic partial differential equations when the uncertainty in the data is highdimensional. In this talk, we investigate the improved performance of MLMC versus...

Materials Science on the Atomic Scale with the 3D Atom Probe
08 Nov 2006 
Some of the key goals of materials science and technology are to be able to design a material from first principles, to predict its behaviour, and also to optimise the processing route for its manufacture. In recent years, these goals have come closer to realisation, thanks in part to the...

Multilevel Markov Chain Monte Carlo for Uncertainty Quantification in Subsurface Flow
02 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Christian Ketelsen
The multilevel Monte Carlo method has been shown to be an effective variance reduction technique for quantifying uncertainty in subsurface flow simulations when the random conductivity field can be represented by a simple prior distribution. In stateoftheart subsurface simulation the...

Practical Introduction to the BioMOCA Suite
23 Apr 2008   Contributor(s):: David Papke
In this presentation, I describe how to use the online BioMOCA Suite. I explain how to prepare the .pqr input protein structure from a .pdb structure. I then explain in detail how to use each of the four subtools in the BioMOCA Suite.I do not cover in detail how the BioMOCA code works. If you...

Quantum and Thermal Effects in Nanoscale Devices
18 Sep 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
To investigate lattice heating within a Monte Carlo device simulation framework, we simultaneously solve the Boltzmann transport equation for the electrons, the 2D Poisson equation to get the selfconsistent fields and the hydrodynamic equations for acoustic and optical phonons. The phonon...
