Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Modeling Carrier Transport of Quantum Cascade Lasers
Curtis R. Menyuk and Muhammad A. Talukder, Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering

In this project we model the carrier transport of quantum cascade lasers taking into account both coherent tunneling mechanisms and non-coherent scattering mechanisms. We simulate the distribution in all the levels in 1.5 period of the actual structure. Quantum kinetic density matrix equations are written with periodic boundary conditions so that translational symmetry is retained.
