Why design and simulation?

Nanoelectronic devices are based on structures whose material properties vary on an atomic length scale. Such structures can be created with a variety of experimental methods in a variety of different material systems. Interfaces between different materials can be atomically abrupt. These abrupt interfaces enable device designers to confine electrons quantum mechanically. Interactions/transitions between different man-made quantum mechanical states open a cornacopia of new device applications. Device simulation based on semi-classical approximations has proven to be a crucial element in the success of the semiconductor industry. The now available nanoelectronic design space has increased due to the large number of material systems and design concepts. However the standard simulation tools for electronic devices brake down since they do not incorporate quantum mechanical effects.
