atom-to-Device Explicit simulation
Environment for Photonics and
Electronics Nanostructures


The major objective of DEEPEN is to develop an integrated multiscale simulation capability for predictive design of novel materials and nanostructures, targeted at two of the most important present device challenges, namely future CMOS and future energy-efficient light sources.

The nanoscale electronic and photonic devices to be studied require models that go beyond approaches strictly related to material science, with many model requirements common to both types of devices. To this end, first principles calculations will be undertaken to establish accurate parameters for empirical methods. With transport key to electrically driven devices, DEEPEN will develop sliding scale coupling between transport models from first-principles through to drift-diffusion, with rigorous investigations of the coupling between scales. These sliding scale transport models will be equally relevant to the design both of electronic and of photonic devices.
