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).

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


nextnano++ features

  • includes 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
  • flexible structures and geometries (1D, 2D and 3D)
  • fully quantum mechanical electronic structure, based on the 8-band k.p model
  • strain, piezo and pyroelectric charges
  • growth directions along [001], [011], [111], [211], ... in short along any crystallographic direction
  • equilibrium and nonequilibrium, calculation of current close to equilibrium (semi-classical)
  • magnetic fields
