Nanoscale Modeling Chapter 7

Designing Opto-Electronic Nanomaterials Using First Principles Simulations

Authors: A.J. Williamson

Affilation: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, United States

Pages: 681 - 684

Keywords: nanomaterials, quantum dots, quantum wires, silicon, simulations

The results of recent first principles simulations of the structural and opto-electronic of semiconductor nanomaterials will be presented. We will show how the opto-electronic properties of silicon nanomaterials can be controlled by altering their size, shape and surface structure. In particular we predict the dependence of the stability, optical gap, band structure, and transport properties of silicon quantum dots and wires on their size, crystal structure, growth direction, surface structure and surface chemistry.
