Full-band, three-dimensional (3D), atomistic, non-equilibrium Green fuction simulations are used to model Si nanowires. Full-band and single band calculations are compared. The effect of surface passivation is analyzed in the full-band simulations. Our approach to the difficult modeling issues is discussed.
