The NanoTCAD ViDES team has announced their new website, http://www.2dmatter.com.
From their announcement:
The website is intended to be a useful tool in order to link to all the recent publications concerned with Two-dimensional materials from the main journals in the field, i.e., (up to now) Physical Review Letters, Physical Review B, Applied Physics Letters, IEEE Transaction on Electron Devices, IEEE Electron Device Letters, IEEE Nanotechnology, Proceedings of IEEE, Scientific Reports, Nature Nanotechnology, ACS NANO and Nano Letters.
Fujitsu announced the simulation of a 3030 Atom Nano device here on January 14th, 2013. The simulation took 20 hours on their supercomputer to simulate the electrical properties of graphene and an insulating layer, using OpenMX Material Explorer.
Even more interesting is the news that OpenMX is an open source tool available from openmx-square.org under the terms of the GPL.
Sefer Bora Lişesivdin announced the release of Aestimo GPL 1D Schrödinger-Poisson solver last month. From his announcement on LinkedIn:
Aestimo Team is proud to release the version 0.9 of Aestimo 1D Self-consistent Schrödinger-Poisson Solver. This version includes many bugfixes, speed improvements, cython code additions, rewritten VBMAT-V part to use numpy better, merging conduction and valance band calculations and more. Code is heavily modified and stabilized.
The software is available for download from: https://bitbucket.org/sblisesivdin/aestimo/downloads.
The DEVSIM Open Source TCAD Simulator is now available for download at SourceForge. Packages are available for:
- Mac OS X Mavericks
- Red Hat 6.5
- Ubuntu 12.04
For more information about the project, including source code availability, please visit https://www.devsim.org.
DEVSIM is now open source. The core engine is licensed under the LGPL 3.0 license, meaning it is available for use in your own software. The project home page is here:

I hope that this software is useful to the TCAD simulation community. Please let me know if you have any questions about installation or usage of the software.
I’ve started a new website at https://www.tcadcentral.com. It is a wiki dedicated to technology computer aided-design. Please check it out, and let me know if you have suggestions, or would like to participate.
