Welcome to the Notre Dame website for software related to semiconductor devices and electronic materials. Here, you can download (for free!) software created by researchers in the Electronic Materials and Devices (EMD) group of the Electrical Engineering department of the University of Notre Dame. The purpose of the software is two-fold: they can be used as educational/instructional tools, and can prove to be equally useful in research. Join the growing community of users of these simple, yet powerful programs by downloading them and using them in your studies and research.

1D Poisson is a program for calculating energy band diagrams for semiconductor structures. It is a FreeWare program created by Prof. Greg Snider which solves the one-dimensional Poisson and Schrodinger equations self-consistently. The program is quite user friendly, and runs on a Macintosh or PC. These are new versions of the program (4/2007) that have a number of nice new features. Click on one of the links below to download an archive containing a version of the program for Macs running OS X. A version that runs in Classic mode under OS X is also available if you send email. The PC version for Windows has all the same features and uses the same files as the Mac version. Both currently run as terminal applications. A GUI is hopefully coming this summer! If the program is used for performing calculations that are used in publications, the authors are requested to refer to the program as “1D Poisson Program, by G. Snider, University of Notre Dame, http://www.nd.edu/~demand”.

Mobility is a software package for the calculation of carrier statistics and transport properties of III-V compound semiconductors. This free package has been created by Dan Barrett under the supervision of Prof. Debdeep Jena as part of a supported program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). It is written in MATLAB, and runs on any operating system that runs MATLAB (Windows, Mac OS X, or what have you). Users have the freedom to expand the program according to their needs by adding new semiconductor materials and scattering mechanisms. Users of the program are encouraged to provide feedback to the creators of the program for further development. If the program is used for performing calculations that are used in publications, the authors are requested to refer to the program as “Mobility Program, by D. Barrett and D. Jena, University of Notre Dame, http://www.nd.edu/~demand”.
Messages (8/15/2007): This is the 1st (beta) version of the release. Please email any comments and/or concerns, and especially if you find bugs in the program.
