The NUSOD conference provides a forum to present and discuss modeling,
simulation, and analysis of semiconductor optoelectronic devices. The
meeting intends to stimulate development and application of advanced
software tools that combine semiconductor electronics and photonics.
Technology Computer Aided Design (TCAD) is becoming a mature technology in
optoelectronic device design including the treatment of nano-scale device
structures. NUSOD aims at building new bridges between theoretical
research and practical device development in optoelectronics. Researchers,
software developers, and device engineers are invited to present their
work in this challenging and exciting field.
Due to the great succes of NUSOD-01 the conference will be held annually, alternating between the United States, Europe, and (hopefully) Japan. The NUSOD-02 conference is held at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, in the heart of the City of Zurich. Detailed information including the conference room and travel information will be posted online. Download conference call.
In recent years, the optoelectronics industry has encountered a
dramatic increase in demand for high-performance devices. Advanced design
software is needed to develop new components that meet the challenging
requirements. Modern technology computer aided design (TCAD) tools can
help to analyze and to optimize device performance. This shortens the
product design cycle, saving time and money. Active research includes the
efficient numerical solution of the device equations as well as the
correct modeling of material properties. Ease of use, accuracy, and
flexibility are often decisive factors for the acceptance of design tools
in on industrial environment.
The scope of the conference includes the following topics:
