Researchs have continually developed the Nanoelectronic Modeling (NEMO) toolset over the past 15 years to provide insight into nanoscale semiconductor devices that are dominated by quantum mechanical effects. The ability to represent realistically large devices on an atomistic basis has been the key element in matching experimental data and guiding experiments. The resulting insights led to the creation of OMEN, a new simulation engine.
