Quantum Transport in Resonant Tunneling Diodes Samarth Agarwal, Zhengping Jiang & Gerhard Klimeck



  • Non-equilibrium Green’s function formalism (NEGF) for charge and current.
  • Generalized open boundary conditions for the Schrödinger equation.
  • Quasi bound states
  • Relaxation in the reservoirs


  • Tool on the nanoHUB: RTD-NEGF.
  • 900 simulation runs from Aug.-Nov 08.
