Front End & Workflow Manager

nextnanomat is a GUI (graphical user interface) for editing input files (ASCII, XML), organizing simulations and submitting jobs (directly or via a batch list), as well as visualizing simulation results. Parallel job execution is supported on multi-core CPUs automatically. Cloud computing (on-premise or in the cloud) is supported via the free HTCondor software.


You can find the online documentation of nextnanomat here.

nextnanomat is customized to work with the following software:

  • nextnano++
  • nextnano³
  • nextnano.NEGF
  • nextnano.MSB
  • and even your software (!)

It is general enough to be adjusted to any (!) TCAD or scientific software that reads in an ASCII file, passes this ASCII file to an executable, and visualizes its 1D, 2D and 3D results. Even nextnanomat's cloud computing feature will work.

nextnanomat can be used as a visualization software for 1D, 2D and 3D results (e.g. somewhat “similar” (but much simpler) than Origin, gnuplot, Compaq Array Viewer, Intel Array Viewer).
The focus lies on quick visualization rather than on professional editing of graphs.

Visualization features:

  • 1D data: x, fi(x)
  • 2D data: VTK and AVS/Express format, Aij format
  • 3D data: VTK and AVS/Express format (i.e. 2D slices through 3D data)
  • 1D slices through 2D data (incl. export)
