3.1. Overview


  • includes group IV materials (Si, Ge, SiGe), all III-V materials, II-VI materials and its ternaries as well as lattice-matched quaternaries. The nitride and II-VI materials are available in the zinc blende and wurtzite crystal structure.

  • flexible structures and geometries (1D, 2D and 3D)

  • quantum mechanics based on single-band and multi-band \(\mathbf{k} \cdot \mathbf{p}\) model within a finite differences grid

  • includes strain, piezo and pyroelectric charges

  • growth directions along [001], [011], [111], [211], … in short along any crystallographic direction

  • equilibrium and non-equilibrium, calculation of current close to equilibrium (semi-classical), ballistic transport

  • magnetic field
