6.1.1. What is nextnanopy?¶
nextnanopy is a Python package for nextnano++, nextnano³, nextnano.NEGF and nextnano.MSB software to automate nextnano simulations and analysis of the results. You can write a Python script to:
run multiple simulations (multidimensional parameter sweep, many input files, etc.)
plot multiple figures, overlay data, save as image or PDF
calculate further quantities using output data
load polygons from a GDSII file for device geometry input
6.1.2. How do I install it?¶
Instructions are on our GitHub site.
Additional to the package installation, you need a valid nextnano license and a configuration file for nextnanopy, if you want to execute a nextnano product.
To easily use your settings and paths already stored in the workflow manager nextnanomat, you can export these settings into a nextnanopy config format. Documented on the following page: Generate nextnanopy Config File.
