Science Applications - general motivation
The driving force for developing and implementing theoretical models is the experiment. Therefore, a large fraction of the group's efforts is dedicated to predict, reproduce and analyze concrete experimental results. Since experiments happen in "real world environment", comparisons with experiment require for the inclusion of many, very different effects, which our software development work nicely covers. The plurality of the implemented effects allows us to study a large variety of "hot topics" in modern semiconductor science.
Currently our work covers:
- Ultra-scaled Transistors
- Solid State Quantum Computing
- Thermoelectricity and Thermal Transport
- Quantum Dots
