Q is an automatic mesh generator developed as a front-end for the simulation of complex three-dimensional (3-D) semiconductor devices. Grids generated with Q exhibit smooth transitions from dense to coarse grid regions and a proper description of irregular geometries such as nonuniform surfaces and interfaces. In addition to the grid itself, Q provides the dual lattice needed for the integration of the device equations. The underlying algorithm avoids the well-known obtuse angle problem.
