Title Screening in Ultrashort ( 5 nm ) Channel MoS 2 Transistors : AFull-Band Quantum Transport Study
Full-band ballistic quantum transport calculations were used to study the screening effects in ultrashort-channel few-layer MoS2 transistors. A large density of states resulted in small screening
Electron transport in germanium junctionless nanowire transistors
Analysis of the contribution of source-to-drain tunneling to the off-current shows suppressed direct tunneling in the junctionless design compared to the inversion mode devices.
Extended Hückel theory for quantum transport in magnetic tunnel junctions
Spin-resolved conductivities in magnetic tunnel junctions are calculated using a semiempirical tight-binding model and non-equilibrium Green's functions. The performance of half-metallic electrodes
Screening in Ultrashort (5 nm) Channel MoS2 Transistors: A Full-Band Quantum Transport Study
Full-band ballistic quantum transport calculations were used to study the screening effects in ultrashort-channel few-layer MoS2 transistors. A large density of states resulted in small screening
Efficient calculation of dissipative quantum transport properties in semiconductor nanostructures
We present a novel quantum transport method that follows the non-equilibrium Green’s function (NEGF) formalism. We termed it the multi-scattering Buttiker-Probe (MSB) method. It generalizes the
A simple treatment of quantum dissipative transport in carbon nanotube transistors
In this paper, we extend our simulation model for the ballistic transport in carbon nanotube field effect transistors (CNTFETs) to include carrier scattering and dissipative transport. A simplified
Transport propreties of organic single electron transistor; dependence on acene length
In this work, we have studied the transport properties of the single molecule transistor using Atomistix ToolKit (ATK) simulators. We have applied the extended Huckeltheory (EHT) coupled with

On the way to develop a complete full-band quantum transport simulation using the Pauli Master Equation, we show our present results on ID n-i-n resistors, ID double barrier resonant tunneling diodes
Quantum transport in NEMO5: Algorithm improvements and high performance implementation
Quantum transport algorithms such as QTBM and NEGF/RGF have been efficiently implemented in the multi-scale simulation tool NEMO5 by taking advantage of the Hamiltonian's characteristics of nanowires


Transport through a strongly interacting electron system: Theory of periodic conductance oscillations.
The participation of multiple electronic levels in each conductance peak explains the anomalous temperature dependence of peak heights observed in recent narrow-channel experiments.
Silicon-based Molecular Electronics
Molecular electronics on silicon has distinct advantages over its metallic counterpart. We describe a theoretical formalism for transport in semiconductor−molecule heterostructures, formally
Importance of space-charge effects in resonant tunneling devices
The consideration of space charge in the analysis of resonant tunneling devices leads to a substantial modification of the current‐voltage relationship. The region of negative differential resistance
Elementary scattering theory of the Si MOSFET
A simple one-flux scattering theory of the silicon MOSFET is introduced. Current-voltage (I-V) characteristics are expressed in terms of scattering parameters rather than a mobility. For long-channel
Quantum transport equations for high electric fields.
It is found that the electric field causes a broadening of the \ensuremath{\delta} function in semiclassical transition rates, a result of the intracollisional field effect, and an integral transport equation is constructed, valid in high electric fields, which differs from the Boltzmann equation.
Random-matrix theory of quantum transport
This is a review of the statistical properties of the scattering matrix of a mesoscopic system. Two geometries are contrasted: A quantum dot and a disordered wire. The quantum dot is a confined
Quantum Statistical Mechanics
The preceding formulation of statistical mechanics is perhaps the simplest application of probability theory to the many-body problem. Although it is consistent with the principles of quantum
