When optical components are reduced to the nanoscale, they exhibit interesting properties that can be harnessed to create new devices. For example, imagine a block of material with thin layers of alternating materials. This creates a periodic arrangement of alternating dielectric constants, forming a "photonic crystal" that is analogous to the electronic crystals used in semiconductor devices. Photonic crystals, along with quantum dots and other devices patterned at the nanoscale, may form the basis for sensors and switches used in computers and telecommunications.

ANGEL - A Nonequilibrium Green's Function Solver for LEDs
07 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: sebastian steiger
Introducing ANGEL, a Nonequilibrium Green’s Function code aimed at describing LEDs.ANGEL uses a description close to the classic NEMO-1D paper (Lake et al., JAP 81, 7845 (1997)) to model quantum transport in a light-emitting diode (LED).ANGEL is the first 1D-heterostructure NEGF to include the...
