Semiconductor devices are scaled down to the level which constituent materials are no longer considered continuous. To account for atomistic randomness, surface effects and quantum mechanical effects, an atomistic modeling approach needs to be pursued. The Nanoelectronic Modeling Tool (NEMO 3-D) has satisfied the requirement by including emprical sps and spds tight binding models and considering strain to successfully simulate various semiconductor material systems. Computationally, however… CONTINUE READING
