Introduction to Atomistic Simulation for Nanodevices

This webinar will provide introduction to the atomistic simulation capabilities of NEMO5, which is evolving into the Silvaco TCAD tool-suite. NEMO5 is a multipurpose nanodevice simulation tool created at Purdue University with 65+ authors and 100+ years of development teamwork over the last decade. Its prime focus is the prediction of electronic and phonon bandstructure and quantum transport properties in semiconductor and metal nanodevices with atomic and subatomic resolution. Compatibility to density functional theory and molecular dynamics input as well as full coverage of real-world effects such as finite temperatures and fabrication limitations (e.g. rough interfaces, alloy and doping disorder etc.) are at the heart of NEMO5.

What attendees will learn:

  • NEMO5’s origins and history
  • Features and challenges of atomistic resolutions
  • Physics and models of NEMO5
    • Strain
    • Bandstructures
    • Electric and magnetic fields
    • Surface passivation
  • Transport/Propagation
    • Various FETs
    • Optoelectronics
    • Thermal transport
    • Incoherent scattering


Prof. Dr. Tillmann Kubis Prof. Dr. Tillmann Kubis is leader of Purdue’s NEMO5 development team. His research interest includes all topics of equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena in nanodevices and molecules. This covers electronic and phonon bandstructures as well as heat, charge and spin transport in nanodevices. Dr. Kubis holds a Dr. rer. nat. in theoretical semiconductor physics from the Technische Universität München, Garching, Germany.

Who should attend:

Academics, engineers and management looking for a heads-up in the new atomistic simulation capabilities
