Component based method of ab initio simulation for nanoscale electronic devices and circuits

Catherine White
This thesis describes the development of a numerical technique for handling quantum electronic transport equations in the ballistic regime in a way that generates physically meaningful and useful quantities about internal device current and coupling. This is achieved by using a Lippmann-Schwinger Tight-Binding transport model and applying it to a quantum device which we consider piecewise, as components or regions of the whole device. We derive the method and explain how it can improve the...
