Our activities include the development of advanced simulation techniques, and the application of computational models to study and design electronic and photonic structures from the macro- to the nano-scale.

The level of detail is driven by the complexity of the device or system under study. The goal is to apply the models to real-world applications, and to capture the underlying physics for computer-based design and analysis. Electronics and Photonics are rich fields for such a purpose, as they contain optical, electronic and thermal properties, which are often coupled together. This leads to coupled multi-physics problems in two or three dimensions, that require dedicated numerical techniques.
