  1. IWCN 2021: How to Preserve the Kramers-Kronig Relation in Inelastic Atomistic Quantum Transport Calculations

    15 Jul 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Daniel Alberto Lemus, James Charles, Tillmann Christoph Kubis

    The nonequilibrium Green’s function method (NEGF) is often used to predict quantum transport in atomically resolved nanodevices. This yields a high numerical load when inelastic scattering is included. Atomistic NEGF had been regularly applied on nanodevices, such as nanotransistors....

  2. Atomistic Green’s Functions: The Beauty of Self-energies

    28 Oct 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Tillmann Christoph Kubis

    This presentation gives an introduction to NEGF. It will be explained how self-energies cause NEGF to fundamentally differ from most other quantum methods. Atomistic examples of phonon and impurity scattering self-energies agree quantitatively with experiments.

  3. Self-energies: Opening Doors for Nanotechnology

    07 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Tillmann Christoph Kubis

    In this talk, it will be shown how the concept of self-energies can be used to interface all these fields into the same nanotechnology modeling framework. Self-energies are most commonly used in the quantum transport method of nonequilibrium Green’s functions (NEGF). The NEGF method is...

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

    Q&A|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,...

    03 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitri Nikonov, Himadri Pal

    Surface scattering in a quantum well.

  7. Scattering in NEGF: Made simple

    09 Nov 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitri Nikonov, Himadri Pal, George Bourianoff

    Formalism for describing electron-phonon scattering, surface scattering, and spin relaxation is dervied for the Keldysh non-equilibrium Green's functions (NEGF) method. Approximation useful for efficient numerical solution are described. The specific case of the nanoMOS simulator is...
