Name        : archimedes
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 2.0.0
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://www.gnu.org/software/archimedes/
Summary     : 2D Quantum Monte Carlo simulator for semiconductor devices
Description :
Archimedes is a package for the design and simulation of submicron
semiconductor devices. It is a 2D Fast Monte Carlo simulator which can take
into account all the relevant quantum effects, thank to the implementation of
the Bohm effective potential method.

The physics and geometry of a general device is introduced by typing a simple
script, which makes, in this sense, Archimedes a powerful tool for the
simulation of quite general semiconductor devices.

Update Information:

Since last FEL release, archimedes entails the following changes:

-    The material parameters have been checked and modified
-    Benchmark tests were carried out to check the validity of the framework
-    Scattering phonons can be set to ON or OFF
-    Support for Full band approach was implemented
-    Parabolic, Kane and Full bank verified
-    Full band parameters supports for all materials
-    Initial implementation of FEM for Poisson
-    Quantum Effective Potential modified
-    Bohm Potential Model was implemented
-    Calibrated Bohm Potential Model was implemented
-    Density Gradient corrected and tested
-    Full effective potential model was implemented
