Mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of innovative electronic nanostructures

Abstract : In this PhD thesis, we are interested in the modeling and the simulation of innovative electronic nanodevices. First, we formally derive an effective mass model describing the quantum motion of electrons in ultra-scaled confined nanostructures. Numerical simulations aim at testing the relevance of the obtained model for a simplified (but already significant) device. The second part is devoted to non-ballistic transport in these confined nanostructures. We rigorously analyze a drift-diffusion model and afterwards we describe and implement a classical-quantum spatial coupling approach. In the last part, we model and simulate a spintronic nanodevice. More precisely, we study the magnetization switching of a ferromagnetic material driven by a spin-current.
