DEEPEN
EUROPEAN UNION PROJECTS

DEEPEN logo tiberlab is a partner of European Union 7th Framework Program (EU FP7) NMP Project DEEPEN: "From atom-to-Device Explicit simulation Environment for Photonics and Electronics Nanostructures"
(from January 2014 to the end of 2016).

DEEPEN will develop an integrated open source multiscale simulation environment, targeted at problems common to future nanoscale electronic and photonic devices. The nanoscale models to be developed address the challenging problem not just of predicting quantitatively electronic bands and quantum phenomena at the nanoscale, but also of linking these critical properties to overall device behavior.
DEEPEN builds on Tyndall and ETHZ expertise in material and device properties, with experimental input from PDI also critical for validation of the multiscale models developed. Industry partners include tiberlab, which will deal with the implementation of the multiscale software framework, a leading TCAD simulation provider (Synopsys) and an industrial end-user (Osram) which will provide experimental validation and test the simulation environment for device design and investigation.

FINAL DEEPEN PRESS RELEASE

The DEEPEN project is driving forward our capability for accurate and reliable device modelling and design, through collaboration and extensive research in modeling and computation methods for semiconductors.
The new tools developed in DEEPEN are finding direct commercial application in the future modelling tools of the project software partners, Synopsys and tiberlab.
tiberlab are hosting the open source multiscale software developed in DEEPEN.

We have been looking in DEEPEN at specific device parts at atomistic level, generating multiscale simulations that link the atomistic behavior to the overall device performance, and ultimately creating new open source interfaces for developing products for the future. Within 3 years, we have advanced our knowledge significantly and the DEEPEN project has had global impact, bringing together leading minds from academia and industry to generate new solutions to our current and future issues.

Prof. O’Reilly, DEEPEN project lead


DEEPEN has been of critical value to us. We prize the opportunity that it has given us to build and re-inforce our device simulation capabilities, of benefit not just for our products but also for the wider community through the open-source interfaces that we have developed.
