Check out the recording and slides of our webinar on the New QuantumATK O-2018.06 Release

Jun 27 2018

Check out the recording and slides of our webinar highlighting the new features and functionalities of the newly released QuantumATK O-2018.06 software package for atomic-scale modeling (the full release letter can be found here). 

Notice that VNL/ATK has a new name - QuantumATK. QuantumATK includes quantum mechanical methods such as DFT and semi-empirical models and the following modules: NEGF, ForceField, and NanoLab (former VNL). We are very excited as it is the first major release since we became part of Synopsys in Sep, 2017.

Presented by: Anders Blom, PhD and Umberto Martinez Pozzoni, PhD, specialists in atomic-scale simulations at Synopsys. 

During this webinar, discover the following new features and functionalities of QuantumATK O-2018.06: 

  • Plane-Wave simulation engine including hybrid functional HSE06
  • New pseudopotentials
  • Performance improvements for periodic and device (with Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function method) density functional theory (DFT) simulations
  • Introduction to the advanced StudyObject framework to perform complex tasks such as:
    • Device geometry optimizations

    • IV characteristics enabling systematic variation of both, the gate-source and the drain-source voltages of a device 

    • Simulating neutral and charged point defects in bulk materials and interfaces: defect  formation energies and transition levels 

  • Special Quasi-random Structure (SQS) generator for simulating alloys
  • New Builder features for building and handling your structures
  • And more new exciting features!
