Ab-initio Quantum Transport Simulation of Hetero-Bilayer Tunnel Field-Effect Transistors
Mono-layer, so-called two-dimensional (2D), materials with a tunnelable band gap, e.g. phosphorene, are becoming very promising for potentially device applications. Tunnel field-effect transistors (TFETs) are expected to give rise to a new generation of low-power consumption logic switches. To date, TFETs are being investigated and built from conventional semiconductors, less often from 2D materials. Your task is from first-principles to characterize/study 2D-material-based TFETs, e.g. hetero-bilayer TFETs. The 2D Materials can be defined starting the project according to the student interest.
