Simulation output

For each simulation run, a new output folder is created in the simulation output folder. The created folder has the name of the input file. In addition date-time is added to the folder name if the option is selected in Options→Expert settings of nextnanomat (this option is recommended in order to avoid overwritten existing output data). The created output folder contains:

  • the input file (.xml) and the material database (.xml).
  • a folder 'Input' which gives material parameters used in the calculation.
  • a folder Strain (only if the strain option is activated).
  • a folder Polarization if pyroelectric and/or piezoelectric effects are considered.
  • a folder 'Init_Electron_Modes' where the results of the initial Schrödinger solution is reported.
  • a folder for each parameter step. In particular, in case of voltage sweep, the name of the folder is the potential drop per period.
  • Several files related to the sweep made. For a voltage sweep, it contains plots of physical quantities (current, gain,…) as a function of the applied voltage.
  • a log file is created at the end of the simulation, containing all the information displayed during the simulation.
