K•P and Low-Field Simulation

1. Cylindrical Nanowire

First, the cross-section of a cylindrical nanowire is created with GTS Structure using a parametrized template and a self-consistent Schrödinger-Poisson simulation is run using parabolic bands. In the next step, the work-flow is expanded by a multi-band (k.p) Schrödinger model. Finally, two low-field models are introduced that compute the channel mobility from the electronic structures from parabolic and kp-bands, respectively.

It is assumed that you are already familiar with GTS Framework and the idea of projects and ToolFolders, as explained in the Getting Started tutorial.

This tutorial was created using GTS Framework Release 2014.03. Other releases might need adjustments or have slightly different user interfaces.
