Synopsys QuantumATK

QuantumATK offers unique capabilities for simulating electrical transport properties of nanodevices on the atomic scale. Based on an open architecture which integrates a powerful scripting language with a graphical user interface, QuantuATK is a comprehensive platform for studies in nanoelectronics, using both accurate first-principles (DFT) and fast semi-empirical methods and classical potentials. Moreover, QuantumATK includes a very advanced electrostatic model to allow realistic simulations of nanoscale transistor structures.

Simulation Software for Nanoscience Professionals

Researchers at R&D departments of the major semiconductor and electronics companies choose QuantumATK for their atomistic simulations. The reason is that they realize that they can work more efficiently using QuantumATK. QuantumATK enables them to reach their goals faster. QuantumATK is customer driven. We develop the program according to customer needs, and we do our best to anticipate their wishes.

What makes QuantumATK the best choice for nanoscience professionals?

  • A smooth workflow with all needed tools right at hand.
  • Fast and reliable results, thanks to powerful codes.
  • Fast and professional support.

This is a brief overview of QuantumATK. For a more detailed description please refer to the feature list.

One Software – Many Calculation Methods

Use the Scripter as an interface for script setup and run calculations. The Scripter allows the user to focus on the physics and chemistry of the simulations, rather than the technical details.

New users can get started faster with an unfamiliar code, without the barrier to learn complex input file formats, and experienced users can be more efficient by easier combining different codes into powerful simulation work flows.
