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 Piezoelectronic Transistor (PET) has been proposed as a post-CMOS device for fast, low-power...
Electronic Structure Theory of Dilute Impurity Alloys: GaBiP and GaBiAs
18 Jan 2013 | | Contributor(s):: M. Usman
We report an atomistic model established for electronic structure calculations of GaBiAs (0 < Bi < 12%) alloys based on empirical tight binding parameters. Alloy supercells consisting of 1000 and 8000 atoms are relaxed using valence force field (VFF) method, including anharmonic corrections to...
