QuantumWise and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will co-develop software that can simulate large-scale nano-electronic devices (including graphene), where electron-phonon coupling is taken into account.
The project, "Nano-Scale Design Tools for the Semiconductor Industry", will extend Quantum Wise's Atomistix ToolKit (ATK) routinely simulate electrical characteristics and thermal heating of nano-scale devices containing more than 100,000 atoms. The calculations will be based on an atomic-scale description and include electron-phonon couplings.
The Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation will fund this new project with 18 million Danish Kroner (over $3 million). The project will start in September 2013 and will run for three years. The partners hope to release the first modules in the spring of 2014.
