nextnano++    -    the next generation 3D nano device simulator

Welcome to our 3D nano device simulator nextnano++.

nextnano++ (written in C++) is the successor of the nextnano³ code (written in Fortran).
The nextnano³ code is available here:

nextnano++ is a Schrödinger-Poisson-current solver and simulates quantum wells, quantum wires, quantum dots, ...


nextnano++ features

bulletincludes group IV materials (Si, Ge, SiGe) and all III-V materials, its ternaries and quaternaries;
the nitrides are available in the zinc blende and wurtzite crystal structure
bulletflexible structures and geometries (1D, 2D and 3D)
bulletfully quantum mechanical electronic structure, based on the 8-band k.p model
bulletstrain, piezo and pyroelectric charges
bulletgrowth directions along [001], [011], [111], [211], ... in short along any crystallographic direction
bulletequilibrium and nonequilibrium, calculation of current close to equilibrium (semi-classical)
bulletmagnetic fields
