NanoTCAD ViDES is a device simulator able to compute transport in nanoscale devices. In particular, it solves self-consistently the 3D Poisson and quantum transport equation within the NEGF formalism. To get an idea of its capabilities, refer to the publication section of this site, in which simulations based on results provided by NanoTCAD ViDES are shown.


We are pleased to announce that the first version of NanoTCAD VIDES is now released under the BSD license. The provided version of the code deals with next generation devices with generic gate geometries:

- Silicon Nanowire FETs.


- Carbon Nanotubes FETs.


- Graphene Nanoribbon FETs: this capability have been recently released ONLY on the nanohub (click on the picture below to be redirected).

GNR-FET modules have been not yet released under the open-source license, but they can be released within a collaborative project: if you are interested, just contact us.

Our aim is to provide to the research community a tool able to foresee and asses performance of device at the end-of-the-roadmap. In addition, due to the versatility of the code, we hope that NanoTCAD ViDES will became a starting point for the
nanoelectronics groups, which seek a well established tool to be further improved by physical models developed by their own, in order to reduce duplication of effort and speed up the learning curve of young physicists and engineers.
