In recent years, significant progress has been achieved in graphene and monlayer 2D material electronics. In a graphene, low bias transport can be nearly ballistic. Conduction and valence bands of a graphene nanostructure are symmetric, which is advantageous for complementary applications. The excellent transport property promises high-speed THz transistor applications. Graphene and its nanostructures are receiving much attention for possible device applications.
Device models and quantum simulations play an important role on understanding experiments, assessing technology potential, and optimizing designs in nanoelectronics. We have developed an atomistic device simulator for graphene devices based on the non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) formalism. The simulator provides an atomistic scale description for quantum transport in the presence of inelastic scattering and electron-photon interaction. We show that edge chemistry of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) provides promising opportunities to engineer device properties. Device physics and design options of GNR-based tunneling transistors with ultrasteep subthreshold swing and low power dissipation are examined. Radio frequency (RF) characteristics of graphene transistors are simulated for understanding their potential in high-speed transistor applications.
