nextnano software

The nextnano software solves the Strain, Poisson, Schrödinger and Current equations self-consistently in one, two and three dimensions. It can be applied to a large variety of semiconductor nanostructures such as nanotransistors, LEDs, laser diodes, quantum dots, nanowires, quantum cascade lasers, HEMTs, photodetectors and solar cells.
