10.1 User Acceptance

The fact that SIESTA has been accepted very well by the user community is very encouraging, and it is an indicator for SIESTA's versatility and robustness. Meanwhile, SIESTA has been used for numerous optimization and calibration tasks with great success. The capability to control arbitrary simulation tools has significantly contributed to this success. Moreover, this capability opens a wide field of optimization applications going far beyond TCAD.
