OPEN KNOWLEDGE PROGRAM - MODULE 7 - TBtrans and TranSiesta Tutorial: Non-Equilibrium Green Functions, from Tight-Binding to Self-Consistency

09 November 2016 - 11 November 2016

ICN2 Seminar Hall, ICN2 Building, UAB

Our workshop will start by introducing the Green function method to a required level of understanding for the remainder of the workshop. Tutorials starts with simple tightbinding models created by Python scripts using Sisl. The input options for TBtrans will be explored and details regarding the TBtrans utility will be emphasised. Simultaneously, data-analysis will be presented using Python. Succeeding the TBtrans tutorials we will concentrate on self-consistent non-equilibrium calculations using TranSiesta. We will showcase how to perform N electrode calculations using TranSiesta.

Upon completing the tutorial the attendee should have obtained knowledge on how to conduct tight-binding calculations as well as self-consistent non-equilibrium Green function calculations.
