Papers Accepted in JPC A and in IEEE TED

Our papers, both spearheaded by Vito, “ReaxFF Reactive Molecular Dynamics Study of Orientation Dependence of Initial Silicon Carbide Oxidation” and “Empirical Model for Electrical Activation of Aluminum- and Boron-Implanted Silicon Carbide” have been accepted for publication in  the Journal of Physical Chemistry A and in the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, respectively.

Mini-Symposium on Computational and Numerical Methods in Electronics at SIAM CSE 2017

Together with Karl RuppPatricio Farrell, and Nella Rotundo, we have co-organized the Mini-Symposium on Computational and Numerical Methods in Electronics at the SIAM CSE 2017 conference, one of the flagship Computational Science and Engineering conferences.

The goal of our Mini-Symposium was to push CSE within the electrical engineering community, which is especially important, as CSE is still very much under-represented in this particular field. We had eight speakers, covering a broad range of topics. The introductory talk presented an overview of the Laboratory’s research challenges and approaches. The following talks were given (presenters underlined):

  • Computational and Numerical Challenges in Semiconductor Process Simulation, P.Manstetten, V.Šimonka, G.Diamantopoulos, L.Gnam, A.Makarov, A.Hössinger, J.Weinbub (TU Wien, Austria)
  • Electron Transport in Nanostructures: Physical Models and Numerical Methods, M.V.Fischetti (University of Texas at Dallas, USA), W.Vandenberghe, M.Van de Put, J.Fang, S.Chen
  • Modeling Spin-Dependent Phenomena for New Device Application, V. Sverdlov (TU Wien, Austria), J.Weinbub, S.Selberherr
  • Fast Reaction-Diffusion of Defects in Cadmium Telluride, D.Brinkman (San Jose State University, USA), C.Ringhofer
  • How Do Electrons Move in Space? Flux Discretizations for Non-Boltzmann Statistics, P.Farrell (Weierstrass Institute, Germany), T.Koprucki, J.Fuhrmann
  • Semiconductor Device Simulation Approaches for Massively Parallel Computing Architectures, K.Rupp (TU Wien, Austria)
  • Modeling and Simulations Using Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory, J.Kestyn (University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA), E.Polizzi
  • NEMO5: A Parallelized Multi-Scale and Multi-Physics Nanodevices Simulation Software, X.Guo (Purdue University, USA), D.Lemus, D.Mejia, J.Fonseca, G.Klimeck, T.Kubis

New Master’s Thesis and (Sponsored) Internship Projects Available

Together with our industrial partner, Silvaco Inc., we are offering new master’s thesis topics and (sponsored) internships.

In general we are looking for young Bachelor’s or Master’s students (preferably from the TU Wien) with some experience and strong interest in C/C++ software engineering in GNU/Linux. All topics are on research relevant topics. Aside from developing highly required tools, the students will also get in touch with Silvaco and with other similarly minded students. The Students will get first hand experiences on working with a global software player within the fast progressing electronics industry.
