Atomistic Simulations in Nanostructures Composed of Tens of Millions of Atoms: Importance of long-range Strain Effects in Quantum Dots

, , , , , , ,
Realistic calculations of propertioes of nanostructures begin with the determination of equilibrium positions of constituent atoms. The nanoelectronic modeling tool NEMO-3D determines these positions by minimizing the total elastic energy. The displacements are further used [...]
