How to build nanoelectronic devices atom by atom?
In recent decades, several device simulation tools using the bottom-up approach have been developed in universities and software companies. These software tools are capable of predicting electric current flowing through a nanostructure, and have been applied extensively to study emerging electronic materials and devices. In this book, the authors conduct an experiment and adopt a 'paradigm' approach; focusing on the development of one particular software tool called NanoDsim, and provide relevant knowledge and techniques whenever needed.
