Quantum Transport Simulation for 21st Century Electronics

Quantum Transport Simulation for 21st Century Electronics

Device simulation plays a major role in the electronics industry reducing development time and cost by replacing costly repetitions of fabrication and benchmarking experiments.  The continued miniaturization in the Moore’s law era has led us to devices with atomic scale dimensions requiring quantum mechanical simulation tools for reliable predictive modeling.

This talk has two parts. First, I will outline the methods we have developed at Purdue which have set new nanodevice simulation standards in industry: The first derivative of our quantum code library, NEMO5, had been adapted by the semiconductor companies intel, TSMC, Samsung, and others. as the nanotransistor simulation standard. My quantum transport methods are deeply embedded in several industrial simulation engines most notably at Intel and Silvaco. Academic researchers too have adapted the code for their device and material predictions. Every year, more than 25,000 simulations are performed with it on nanohub.org alone. 

In the second part of this talk, I will describe how we are currently expanding the quantum transport methods and the quantum code library in collaboration with chemists at Purdue and Merck towards molecular chemistry, material crystallization, drug formulation and amorphous material research.  Our vision is to expand the impact of our quantum transport models from the electronics industry to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
