vacuum level
« on: January 26, 2018, 13:55 »
hi
in a paper says :  A vacuum thickness of 12 Å in the x-direction and
a vacuum thickness of 15 Å in the y-direction are used to
decouple the periodic images .
How do I do this?

You can increase the lattice parameters in the corresponding directions to increase the vacuum  thickness. This can done using the Bulk Tools -> Lattice Parameters in the Builder.

That is, if I considered a ribbon, its distance from the next ribbon in the same direction is 15 or 12 angstroms?
So if I want to design a device that uses a dielectric for those 15 angstroms and a gate thickness of 5 angstroms, how can it be done with the 12-angstrom expressed? Are these two related?

No, they are not related, i.e., you can set the vacuum thickness in the two directions as you want.

So to adjust the vacuum level, I need to change the lattice parameters to make the ribbon spacing equal to 15 Angstroms.
What should I do now to simulate the same material as the vacuum is 15 Angstroms and the dielectric thickness is 20 Angstroms? Should I change the lattice parameter again to create a 20-angstrom space? I'm really confused. Please help me
