Join us for a free webinar featuring a demonstration of simulating interfaces at the atomic scale using QuantumATK (former VNL-ATK).

You can register here.

Interfaces, such as metal-semiconductor, are becoming increasingly more important due to continued down-scaling of electronic devices. For example, the detailed understanding of the metal-semiconductor contact resistance at the atomic scale is necessary in order to tailor the contact resistance of the devices. You can learn more about simulating interfaces with QuantumATK in the  TCAD News, December 2017.

This webinar might also be interesting to researchers/engineers in other application areas than electronics, as simulating interfaces is important when modeling batteries, solar cells and materials in general.

The webinar will be held twice on February, 27th:
9 am CET (CET - Central European Time, Denmark)
6 pm CET (good time for participants from Americas).

The duration is 1 hour (including 15 min Q&A session).

Presented by: Daniele Stradi, PhD and Petr Khomyakov, PhD - Senior Application Engineers from Synopsys QuantumWise.

Discover the simulation of interfaces with QuantumATK:
- Learn about our state-of-the-art method for simulating interfaces (Density Functional Theory + Non Equilibrium Green's Function method).
- Create and relax the structure of the interface, dope the semiconductor.
- Calculate electronic structure (band diagram) of the interface and the most important parameters that characterize an interface: Schottky barrier and contact resistance.
- Perform a physically sound analysis, compare with experimental results.
- Learn from the Global Foundries and IBM Research study of the TiGe/Ge interface and the Imec study of the TiSi/Si interface, both carried out using QuantumATK.

Afterwards, there will be time for questions and discussion.

For any questions about the webinar, please contact We look forward to meeting you during the webinar!
