Welcome to the website of the new version of the NanoTCAD ViDES code, which levers on the versatility of the python scripting, and on the strength of the C/Fortran languages.
The current version of NanoTCAD ViDES is a python module, which integrates the C and Fortran subroutines already developed in the past version of the NanoTCAD ViDES simulator, which is able to simulate nanoscale devices, through the self-consistent solution of the Poisson and the Schroedinger equations, by means of the Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function (NEGF) formalism.
The module developed so far has a set of predefined functions, which allow to compute transport in:
- Graphene Nanoribbons
- Carbon Nanotubes
- Two-dimensional graphene FET
- Two-dimensional bilayer graphene FET
The user can anyway define his own device and material through the exploitation of the Hamiltonian command, which allows to define whatever material within the tight-binding approach.
The code is highly modularized, so that additional modules can be easily added, following the tips and the explanations provided in the “Developing Modules” session.
- the Commands available in the released version of the code.
- the Tutorial, which introduces the user to the NanoTCAD ViDES simulator, providing examples and scripts, which can be downloaded.
