Bozidar Novakovic's Biography

Bozidar Novakovic is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, working with Professor Gerhard Klimeck.

He earned the following degrees:

  • diploma degree, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Novi Sad, Serbia, 2005.
  • M.Sc., Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade, Serbia, 2007.
  • M.A., Physics, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2011.
  • Ph.D., Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2012.

Before starting his current position he was a PhD student investigating novel quantum transport phenomena in the transient regime and in unconventional geometries by creating custom computational algorithms and associated code in Fortran and MATLAB. More details, including the PhD thesis document, can be found at his former group web page.

Since joining the group he has been working on the following projects chronologically as the lead author or coauthor:

  1. NEMO5 software co-development to enable the first code release in Intel in 2013 for use in self-consistent quantum transport device simulations (J1):
    • Implemented inhomogeneous and adaptive energy grid constructor to enable accurate and efficient charge density calculation.
    • Developed or co-developed self-consistent algorithms to solve non-linear equation system consisting of Poisson and transport equations.
    • Co-implemented and debugged program flows to enable actual device simulations, like gated nanowire and ultra-thin body, and quasi 1D configurations.
    • Verified and benchmarked device simulations for physical validity, speed, and accuracy comparing to the trusted reference code.
  2. Collaborated on simulation and modeling of novel steep subthreshold devices:
    • Field effect transistor based on energy filtering with supperlattices (J2)
    • Tunnel field effect transistors based on 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (J3, C1, C2, C3).
  3. Ongoing development and implementation of methods for time-resolved quantum transport with applications to device turn on energy/delay calculation, nonlocal phonon scattering, and new device effects based on wave function phase manipulation:
    • Time-resolved quantum transmitting boundary method (P1, C4, PPT1)
