Step up your research game with NanoDCAL+, an atomic orbital implementation of NEGF-DFT descending from NanoDCAL. Like NanoDCAL, it computes the Hamiltonian of materials and devices from first principles (i.e. without external parameters) using density functional theory (DFT) and simulates quantum transport phenomena within the Keldysh non-equilibrium Green function formalism (NEGF). However, NanoDCAL+ is entirely written in Fortran at the core to boast a massively parallel implementation. Moreover, its convenient Python user interface includes a large suite of methods for calculating many important transport properties in your materials. It is fully compatible and integrated with our new material design tool RESCU+.
Fast & parallel solver
NanoDCAL+ is carefully optimized to get you the answer faster. The code is parallelized using MPI and scales to 1,000’s of cores.
Simulate realistic devices accounting for the effect of gates and dielectric materials consistently.
Compute the current versus voltage characteristic to predict nanoscale device performance.
Transmission & conductance
Get transmission channels and coefficients, conductance for bulk materials, surfaces and devices.
NanoDCAL+ has a friendly Python interface, allowing one to quickly and easily build workflows and visualize data. Choose from our pool of calculators to compute ground state densities, band structures, Hamiltonians, IV curves and more.
Ground state properties
Predict ground state properties like total energy, atomic forces, stress tensor.
Include the physics of electronic spin and spin-orbit coupling via a state-of-the-art spin-DFT implementation (collinear and non-collinear formalisms).
