This code simulates the 1D coupled transport in nanoscale materials. Both the electrical and thermal transport are simulated using a Non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) to solve the wave equation. The models handle the electron-phonon, electron-electron, and phonon-phonon interactions. The electrical model is a 1D effective mass description and the thermal model is a 1D atomistic description.

This code was specifically designed to investigate nanoscale thermoelectrics. More specifically, highly confined superlattice structures, where the periodicity is on the order of 5nm. In order to resolve the transport in these structures the discrete every levels were explicitly calculated. Both the thermal and electrical trasport is governed to first order how well these discrete energy levels align and the number of levels. The model is able to calculate the transport based solely on the energy level alignment (ballistic model) and the aforementioned interaction (dissipative model).

In honor of Earth Day, HPCC Systems is committed to planting 10,000 new trees across our national forests.

HPCC Systems is dedicated to the environment and is giving you the opportunity to take action and be a small part of a big impact. In partnership with the National Forest Foundation, HPCC Systems is growing and promoting awareness of environmental sustainability with their 10K Trees Challenge. The best time to plan a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now! Take our survey and take part in helping the environment.
