All The Methodologies
Our goal is to study electronic properties of real devices. Since the real devices contain too many atoms to be simulated within the ab-initio approach, we use less exact but still reliable empirical tight binding and k.p approximations. Our research consists of two main stages. In the first stage we find tight binding parameters that can reproduce electronic properties of the bulk crystal. In the second stage we use the parameters to study real device problems: transport, optics, etc.
This page showcases the various methodologies used for the optimization of scientific calculations.
