TiberCAD: towards multiscale simulation of optoelectronic devices
- First Online:
Due to the downscaling of semiconductor device dimensions and the emergence of new devices based on nanostructures, carbon nanotubes and molecules, the classical device simulation approach based on semi-classical transport theories needs to be extended towards a quantum mechanical description. We present a simulation environment designed for multiscale and multiphysics simulation of electronic and optoelectronic devices with the final aim of coupling classical with atomistic simulation approaches.
