Atomistic Modeling of Realistically Extended Semiconductor Devices with NEMO/OMEN
Date of this Version2010
IEEE Computing in Science and Engineering (CISE), Vol. 12, 28-35, 2010.
The Nanoelectronic Modeling (NEMO) Toolset has been continually developed over the past 15 years to provide insight into nano-scale semiconductor devices that are dominated by quantum mechanical effects. The ability to represent realistically large devices in an atomistic basis has been the key element to match experimental data and to guide experiments. Now these insights flow into the creation of a new simulation engine called OMEN. Critical modeling requirements, scaling on parallel computers, and sample scientific results are discussed.
