Tags: NEGF


The non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) formalism provides a powerful conceptual and computational framework for treating quantum transport in nanodevices. It goes beyond the Landauer approach for ballistic, non-interacting electronics to include inelastic scattering and strong correlation effects at an atomistic level.

  1. Non-linear Poisson eq. convergence issue for self-consistent calculation in NEGF

    Closed | Responses: 0


    I was working on Prof. S. Datta's code (https://nanohub.org/resources/19564) for 1D diode. I find the convergence rate is highly sensitive to the initial guess, although...

  5. How to consider electron-photon interaction w/o using self-energy?

    Closed | Responses: 0

    Hi, In negf, interactions are considered as self-energies. For electron-photon interaction, a perturbation Hamiltonian is derived and then self-energy is found using coupled-field theory. Now,...

  7. NEGF Formulism Question

    Open | Responses: 1


    I’m not too familiar with the NEGF formalism. But had a very basic question.

    I’ve read that NEGF can be viewed as a “Quantum Boltzmann Equation”. When...
