Relevant Previous Achievements


Fast algorithms for propagation of electromagnetic wave and circuit simulators

W.C. Chew has invented a series of fast algorithms for solving electromagnetic scattering and inverse problems. His research group has developed parallel codes that solve dense matrix systems with tens of millions of unknowns for the first time for integral equations of scattering, which has been used to simulate the propagation of electrical signals through integrated circuits. K.L. Wu is an expert in electromagnetic numerical modelling. P. Chan led a team of engineers that defined and developed a CAD system to design multi-chip module products. This effort led to the first functional 486 based multi-chip module at Intel.

Quantum transport in nanoscale and molecular devices

H. Guo and J. Wang have pioneered the field of first-principles simulation of quantum transport through nano-electronic devices. They have developed a density-functional theory coupled to nonequilibrium Green's function theory to calculate the currents through molecular and nanoscopic electronic devices (Phys. Rev. B 63, 245407 (2001), times cited: 362). This work represents a very important step forward in nano-electronics theory and laid the foundation of the first-principles theory and modeling of molecular electronics. G.H. Chen and his group have pioneered the first-principles quantum mechanical simulation of transient currents through molecular and nanoscopic electronic devices (Phys. Rev. B 75, 195445 (2007)). The method developed has been applied to simulate the switch-on or off of a molecular device for the first time from first-principles. Since the quantum transport in nano-devices especially in AC bias is in general a nonequilibrium process, equilibrium quantum transport theory such as scattering matrix theory is not adequate to describe this process. J. Wang is also an expert in nonequilibrium quantum transport theory and has formulated a proper theoretical framework based on the nonequilibrium Green's functions to predict finite frequency AC and nonlinear DC quantum transport properties.

Strongly correlated electron systems and spintronics

Electron-electron correlation continues to be one of the most challenging problems in condensed matter physics. Our team has been in the forefront of this field. In a well known paper, the coordinator and T. M. Rice at ETH-Zurich proposed a microscopic model as a minimum model to understand some essential properties of high transition temperature superconducting copper oxides, which has become a widely adopted mathematic model to study the copper oxides (Phys. Rev. B 39, 3759 (1988), with over 2000 citations). The proposed composite particle of the charge carrier is now called "Zhang-Rice singlet". The theory that the coordinator subsequently developed with his collaborators (Supercon. Sci and Tech. 1, 36 (1988)) has become an important part of so-called "plain vanilla version" of one of the theories to explain high transition temperature superconductivity.

Spintronics, or spin electronics, involves the study of active control and manipulation of electron's magnetic spin (a tiny compass) in materials. Recently, this field has been developing rapidly for its potential applications in electronic devices. Our team has been actively working on recent development in this field. Zhang and his collaborators studied spin Hall effect of a 2-dimensional electron gas in a uniform magnetic field and predicted a resonant spin Hall conductance (Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 256603 (2004)). J. Wang and H. Guo have studied spin currents and spin Hall conductance fluctuations in mesoscopic systems (Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 196402 (2007); 100, 066803 (2008)). Cui and J. N. Wang have studied spin current injection and detection by optical and transport means.

Fast algorithm for quantum mechanical simulation of electronic dynamic processes

The computational time of O(N) method scales linearly with the system sizes, and is thus the most efficient method for very large systems. G.H. Chen has developed the first O(N) quantum mechanical method for electronically excited systems (Phys. Rev. B 59, 7259 (1999)). Recently Chen has extended density-functional theory to open systems, and thus laid the rigorous foundation of first-principles method for realistic nanoscopic molecular devices (Phys. Rev. B 75, 195445 (2007)). The method has been used to simulate the transient currents through a carbon nanotube based electronic device. In collaboration with Thomas Frauenheim of Bremen University, Chen and his students have implemented the new method with an approximate density-functional theory (density-functional tight-binding method), and thus make it possible to simulate the transient currents through novel electronic devices with dimension up to 10 nm on a modest PC cluster.

Transport measurement of a single molecule and novel semiconductor devices

X.D. Cui has developed a method for making electrical contact to single molecules and has performed the first repeatable measurement of current through a single molecule (Science 294, 571 (2001)). The method is a powerful tool to study the electrical properties of molecular mesoscopic systems. The work was highlighted in an article in Science, "It's all about the contacts", and was listed in "Highlights of 2001" in Chemical and Engineering News (Dec. 2001). J.N. Wang has developed a novel technique to fabricate GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wire resonant tunneling diodes. The electronic one-dimensional states and wavefunctions of these devices have been measured for the first time by magneto-resonant tunneling spectroscopy (Phys. Rev. Lett. 73, 1146 (1994); 75, 1996 (1995)).

Exact theory for the real-time dynamics of quantum transport and related systems

Y.J. Yan has constructed a reduced density matrix based theory, which is not just formally exact, but also by far the most tractable approach to the real-time dynamics of general quantum transport and related problems; see J. Chem. Phys. 128, 234703 (2008); 129, 184112 (2008); 130, 164708 (2009).

Computational imaging for optical projection lithography

The design of photomasks used in the optical lithography process must take into account the various optical effects inherent in the system. E. Lam has developed inverse imaging technology for an automatic efficient optical proximity correction design used for mask synthesis. He has also pioneered a phase initialization mechanism which enhances the robustness of mask design against variations in imaging conditions (Opt. Exp. 16, 14746 (2008)). His work has received a best paper award at the SPIE Lithography Asia conference in Taiwan.

Current Research




       This objective is to simulate, from first-principles, the electrical properties and processes of emerging devices with atomistic details. To realize this objective we are developing a powerful atomistic-TCAD tool and have achieved decisive progress (TCAD stands for Technology Computer Aided Design). Our atomistic-TCAD is centered on the NEGF-DFT method where density functional theory (DFT) is carried out within the nonequilibrium Green’s function (NEGF) framework, as such the nonlinear and nonequilibrium quantum transport problems including all atomistic degrees of freedom are solved self-consistently without phenomenological parameters. We have successfully developed the atomistic-TCAD prototyping software platform that solved six critical problems:

  1. By implementing the modified Becke-Johnson (MBJ) semi-local exchange potential in NEGF-DFT, we achieved necessary accuracy for the calculated band gaps, dispersions, effective mass of important electronic materials Si, Ge and all zinc-blend III-Vs. Band offsets of GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs for the entire range of concentration x were also obtained with very good accuracy. Since MBJ is not a fundamental theory for resolving electron correlation, we have carefully investigated its relevant and fundamental issues and arrived at a good understanding of its applicability.
  2. By implementing coherent potential approximation (CPA) and nonequilibrium vertex correction (NVC), and by a new theoretical development of the nonequilibrium CPA, we achieved necessary accuracy and computational stability for calculating impurity doped materials, impurity scattering, disorder averaged transport properties and conductance fluctuations.
  3. By developing special algorithms and good parallelism, the atomistic-TCAD has solved problems involving many hundreds, thousands and the largest 19,200 Si atomic sites in the device channel by NEGF-DFT self-consistently, where DFT is within the linear muffin tin orbital (LMTO) method with atomic sphere approximation (ASA). We also have LCAO (linear combination of atomic orbitals) and Gaussian based NEGF-DFT methods that do not rely on ASA to solve problems with up to several hundred atoms (largest about 900 Si atoms with double-zeta polarized basis in LCAO).
  4. Our NEGF-DFT has been benchmarked by comparing calculated results with Synopsys/Sentaurus which is an industrial strength TCAD tool that uses many phenomenological parameters. Work has also started to benchmark against another industrial TCAD Silvaco/Atlas. Since different industrial TCAD tools (by different firms) differ in details of their device model while our atomistic-TCAD is a unified tool, benchmarking against different industrial TCAD tools is useful. The figure shows the quantitative benchmarking of self-consistent potential profiles inside two-terminal Si device channels at room temperature with uniform channel doping in n-p-n and p-n-p devices. Excellent agreements between the NEGF-DFT and the Sentaurus device simulation results for different dopant atoms, concentrations and doping profiles are observed. They validate the NEGF-DFT part of our atomistic-TCAD. Importantly, for modeling emerging systems and/or new device concepts, the lack of phenomenological parameters makes traditional TCAD powerless while our atomistic-TCAD is most powerful.
  5. To save computational time, our atomistic-TCAD also includes a tight binding (TB) model for quantum transport analysis. We have developed a good fitting procedure to obtain standard Slater-Koster parameters for which the input is the fitting target - usually a band structure or several band structures obtained by DFT. The output is the TB which has a number of useful features for device modeling including orthogonal/non-orthogonal basis, various interaction ranges, combination of various types of atoms and orbitals, collinear spin and spin-orbit terms. Our TB for the interesting 2d transition metal dichalcogenides MoS2 is shown in the figure below. Our transport codes have achieved calculation of transmission coefficients of Si channels with (10nm)2 cross section having more than one million atoms (10 orbitals per atom) on a 32-core cluster.
  6. High frequency and transient transport properties are more difficult to compute from atomistic methods due to the extra variable involved (frequency or more difficultly, time). We have achieved excellent understanding of the intrinsic electron dynamics by either the perturbative approach with NEGF-DFT or by direct integration of TDDFT equations for open device structures. Comprehensive NEGF derivations were completed and preliminary atomistic calculations carried out on systems involving up to 156 atoms. Direct comparison between frequency- and time-domain was made on a two-terminal carbon nanotube device: perfect agreement of the calculated dynamic admittance from the two approaches was found. Very recently we have discovered a complex absorbing potential (CAP) approach that cuts down computation time from O(N2) scaling to O(N) where N is the number of time steps. We are confident that the new code based on NEGF-DFT-CAP will take us to reach much larger time scales not accessible by any existing atomistic first principles modeling methods.


Computational Electromagnetics:


       This objective is to employ efficient electromagnetic solvers to simulate electrical signals, power delivery, crosstalk, interference, and noise in multi-scale complex integrated circuits. Central to this objective is to develop techniques and software to efficiently solve multi-scale phenomena in computational electromagnetics (CEM). Disparate sizes in geometrical models induce both low-frequency circuit physics and high-frequency wave physics, resulting in ill-conditioned matrix equations in CEM. This problem becomes especially difficult for our AoE project, since we model all the way from atomistic systems to macroscopic heterogeneous systems, spanning huge length scales. Recently, we successfully advanced CEM in very substantial ways and our innovation attracted industry funding from Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (China) and Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development (USA). The solution to the CEM problems also allowed us to discover innovative numerical methods for solving the Poisson equation and the self-energy equation of NEGF-DFT. Collaborations within AoE have made use of these innovations to realize multi-scale simulations of a proposed junctionless transistor. Focusing on solving three critical challenges: (a) low frequency stability and accuracy, (b) simulation speed, and (c) the complexity of objects, we have discovered new methodologies to handle low frequency CEM with superior speed for complex physical layers of integrated circuits. The following summarize the major achievements and our continuing research effort in this objective.

  1. We have successfully addressed the low-frequency breakdown and inaccuracy problems in the Calderón multiplicative preconditioned electric field integral equation (CMP-EFIE). We have discovered a new perturbation theory to reformulate the problem in such a way that the electric currents at different frequency orders as a power series can be calculated accurately. We have successfully applied our perturbation method on CMP-EFIE for capacitive structures with open surfaces. The electric currents on closed surfaces can be accurately computed at very low frequencies.
  2. Using novel tree browsing we developed a new fast Poisson solver for static device modeling. The fast multipole algorithm at low frequency is accelerated by rotation methods to increase the feasible multipole truncation number. As shown in the figure, our method solves the Poisson equation in O(N) where N is the number of finite element triangles (data fitted to the red line). It dramatically reduces calculation time compared to traditional FEM with iterative method is seen. Together with Augmented Electric Field Integral Equation, we have demonstrated simulations for on-chip structures that cannot be handled by even the leading commercial tools.
  3. A hybrid electromagnetics circuit simulator is created for incorporating multiport lumped circuit networks through their admittance matrices into the discontinuous Galerkin time-domain (DGTD) method. By splitting the computational domain of interest into two subdomains, one for the EM part solved by the DGTD, and another, the circuit part modeled by the basic I-V relationships in the time domain. These two domains are coupled at lumped ports. The port voltages and currents are solved via the coupled systems. Due to the local properties of DGTD operations, only small coupling matrix systems are involved. Further improvement in efficiency is achieved by a local time-stepping strategy.


Simulating Emerging Electronic Materials:


       This objective is to model electrical, chemical and mechanical properties of new materials for emerging technology. Central to this objective is to develop efficient software tools for determining the atomic structures of new materials that enter emerging electronic devices. While the electronic properties and atomic structures of crystalline solids are obtained by our atomistic-TCAD presented above, our AoE has focused to develop a software platform for simulating the structures of amorphous dielectric materials. In particular, high-κ materials are very important for gate oxides in nano-scale transistors but they are very difficult to simulate due to the large time scales required. The major achievement here was the development of a combined approach of classical molecular dynamics (MD) - for structure evolution, and quantum mechanical DFT - for electronic structure analysis. The power of this combined software method is demonstrated by calculating properties of structural and lattice dielectric constants of bulk amorphous metal oxides.

       Our classical MD is based on the Born-Mayer-Buckingham potential function within a melt-and-quench scheme. It has successfully generated various amorphous structures of high-κ metal oxides Hf1−xZrxO2 with different values of the concentration x. The coordination numbers and the radial distribution functions of the structures are in good agreement with the corresponding experimental data. We have then calculated the lattice dielectric constants of these materials from DFT: the values, averaged over an ensemble of samples, agree very well with the available experimental values. The figure shows the calculated lattice dielectric constants (κL) for the amorphous structures of Hf1−xZrxO2. All the black symbols are for the values in each direction of X, Y, and Z averaged over ten samples, while the square symbols connected with a solid red line represent the values which are averaged over all three directions for each value of concentration x. In the inset the standard deviations of dielectric constants over the ten samples along the X direction are given. Most importantly, our combined approach allows us to simulate many amorphous structures efficiently to obtain averaged result, while such calculations would be hard to do if only DFT is solely used for structure generation.


Emerging Spintronics:


       This objective is to develop modeling tools for simulating emerging spintronics and magnetic random access memory (MRAM). Since spintronics is itself a frontier science with huge gaps in its conceptual understanding for many situations that are on top and beyond the present theory, a major effort of AoE is to investigate at the conceptual level this emerging phenomena, in addition to developing and perfecting the spin resolved-transport modeling using our atomistic-TCAD.

       The major achievement in this objective is the pioneering exploration of what we now call valley optoelectronics in 2D transition metal dichalcogenides, where we first demonstrated experimentally the preliminary valley optoelectronic control and dynamic pumping of valley pseudospin (in parallel with the independent works by Heinz group at Columbia U and a Peking U-CAS group). In many semiconductors, the band edges are located at degenerate non-central valleys (i.e. energy extrema of bands) in the momentum space. The large separation between the valleys renders intervalley scattering inefficient; hence a valley polarization (i.e. more occupation of one valley than its degenerate counterparts, an analog of spin polarization) can have long lifetimes. Interestingly, the valley index of carrier can be exploited as information carrier. We have discovered that 2D group-VI transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) can offer such new valley based electronics. Experimentally and theoretically, members of the AoE have made pioneering studies on valley optoelectronics in 2D TMDCs. This figure shows the general valley dependent optical selection rule in TMDCs (such as WS2). The interband transition between conduction and valence band edges at K (–K) couples only to left (right) circularly polarized light. The very high impact results of this emerging valley-spintronic system have been published in such journals as Nature Nanotechnology and PRL.


       AoE has continued its effort to model both traditional and emerging MRAM made of magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJ). Using macrospin and micromagnetics simulations, members of AoE have predicted that the ferromagnetically coupled synthetic ferromagnetic free layers in MTJ can be driven into oscillating state without applied magnetic field; this is a very useful discovery for practical applications of torque based MRAMS. In a related direction, we have used our atomistic-TCAD tool to investigate new MTJs that is based on the abundant NaCl insulating barrier with FePt injecting electrodes. Large tunnel magnetoresistance ratio was predicted for this system. Since NaCl is much easier to grow on FePt than the commonly studied Mg on Fe, an interesting emerging MTJ may be found.

       With these major conceptual achievements and with our software platforms for simulating spin polarized quantum transport, AoE has reached the critical turning point from mainly modeling metal spintronics (such as MRAMs) to semiconductor spintronics. These achievements will allow the atomistic-TCAD of AoE to have powerful features that simply do not exist in any standard TCAD existing today.




       This objective is to use electron beam lithography to fabricate emerging devices for measurements and calibration of the software tools of the AoE. While our software developments and preliminary platforms have been used to calculate pertinent results that can be qualitatively and quantitatively compared to experimental data in the literature, or compared to industrial TCAD as demonstrated above, we believe better comparisons can be made with experimental results of our own. We have developed processes to fabricated nanowires with different cross-sections. Our technique can be used to fabricate experimental transistors (for example Tunneling FET) for model calibration including process variation study. The figure shows FinFET and FinTFET fabrications carried out by members of AoE in facilities at HKUST, and the SEM images of these device structures. We have also developed physical models of the devices and characterized these physical models by measuring I-V curves of the fabricated devices. The fact that we can fabricate these highly demanding device structures and also characterize them, is a major achievement.

       With this important achievement and with the development of physical models of these devices in which the physical parameters can be extracted from the data, AoE has reached the critical transition from mainly theoretical/numerical R&D to being able to predict physical parameters to directly and quantitatively compare with our own data.


Multi-scale modeling and i-MOS:


       This objective is to develop a set of multi-scale modeling tools for emerging devices and integrated circuits. Very important is also the development of overall software front-end that serves as the AoE software controller and graphical user interface (GUI).

       As already presented above, on the atomistic side, AoE has developed various modeling tools ranging from NEGF-DFT that can handle up to about ten thousand atoms self-consistently, to TB methods that can calculate transport for systems at a million atom level, and connecting the two with our TB parameter generation. On the macroscopic side, AoE has developed fast numerics to solve the effective mass k.p Hamiltonian for quantum transport within NEGF (see Appendix II-2.3), and purely SPICE type physical models (see Appendix II-5.1&2). An extremely difficult task is to seamlessly connect the atomic models with the macroscopic models for transport. To this end, a major achievement is the independent development of a quantum mechanics/electromagnetics (QM/EM) method. The idea is to divide the device into QM and EM regions which are simulated with the QM and EM methods, respectively. The key issue is the boundary matching at the QM/EM interface which requires extremely careful and detailed investigations. The current density at the interface is used as a part of the boundary condition for the EM calculation, and the Hartree potential at the interface is used as a part of the boundary condition for the QM calculation. As a result, current, potential and charge distributions are continuous across the QM/EM interface. To demonstrate, the QM/EM method was used to calculate the I-V curves of experimental junctionless Si transistors, which were used to construct the corresponding compact model. The compact model can be used for SPICE simulation. The figure shows the simulation of an inverter made of junctionless Si transistors. The qualitative features are correctly obtained. Further details of the QM/EM can be found in the Appendix II-6-A.1.

       Another very significant achievement of AoE is the successful development of the web-based device simulator called i-MOS. The idea is to create an on-line simulation platform for the compact model and circuit simulation community. The first interactive Modeling and Online Simulation (i-MOS) platform was launched in June 2012. So far, the platform has the following services:

  1. A Verilog-A compiler for model developer to submit their models to be included in the i-MOS;
  2. Standard benchmark test processes to qualify and ensure that the submitted models are complete, continuous and differentiable over all voltage range;
  3. An online simulation platform for users to directly perform circuit simulation over the internet.

       The i-MOS Platform developed by Prof. Mansun Chan’s group is the first attempt to provide a standard to develop compact models and perform online simulation. Currently, it has attracted more than 100 users from various universities and the industry. After 2 years of i-MOS’ introduction, NSF and the Semiconductor Research Corp. have funded the same initiative with a funding of USD 6 million to develop the Nano-Engineered Electronic Device Simulation (NEEDS) program ( which has very similar objectives and methodologies as i-MOS. We are about two year ahead in this initiative.

       We have developed a complete GaN HEMT model called e-HEMT together with Tsinghua University and the model has been released through i-MOS. Recently, the compact model council (CMC) has solicited e-HEMT to be a candidate for the industrial standard model for GaN HEMT (

       The TFET physical model developed by members of AoE (see Objective 5 and Appendix II-5.1) has been implemented on the i-MOS platform that users can test and verify. The figure is a screen shot of i-MOS. Most importantly, i-MOS serves as the overall AoE software controller and GUI. Further details about i-MOS can be found in Appendix II-6-B.3.

       With these important achievements and with the development our various software platforms presented above, AoE has reached the turning point from separately developing methods by our teams for various domains of R&D, to being able to unify the simulation methods into a powerful software platform under i-MOS. This will be delivered as the final “product” that achieves the overall aim of the AoE, namely the next generation electronic design automation tool which combines the atomistic simulation of individual devices and the modeling of the circuitry. With the continued support of UGC/RGC for the second half of this project, we are confident this ambitious and far reaching goal will be realized by our AoE.
