Gerhard Klimeck is the Director of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology at Purdue University and a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He guides the technical developments and strategies of nanoHUB.org which served over [http://nanohub.org/usage 167,000 users] worldwide with on-line simulation, tutorials, and seminars in the year 2010. He was the Technical Group Supervisor of the High Performance Computing Group and a Principal Scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Previously he was a member of technical staff at the Central Research Lab of Texas Instruments where he served as manager and principal architect of the Nanoelectronic Modeling ([https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/nemo1D NEMO 1-D]) program. NEMO 1-D was the first quantitative simulation tool for resonant tunneling diodes and 1D heterostructures. At JPL and Purdue Gerhard developed the Nanoelectronic Modeling tool (NEMO 3-D ) for multimillion atom simulations. NEMO 3-D has been used to quantitatively model optical properties of self-assembled quantum dots, disordered Si/SiGe systems, and single impurities in Silicon. Both tools are based on the representation of the nanoelectronic device with atomistic empirical tight-binding. Quantitative device modeling was demonstrated without any material parameter adjustments, just by entry of geometrical structure parameters. At Purdue his group is developing a new simulation engine that combines the [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/nemo1D NEMO 1-D] and [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/nemo3D NEMO 3-D] capabilities into a new code entitled [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/omen OMEN]. Prof. Klimeck's research interest is in the modeling of nanoelectronic devices, parallel cluster computing, and genetic algorithms. Dr. Klimeck received his [http://nanohub.org/resources/3831 Ph.D. in 1994 on Quantum Transport] from Purdue University and his German electrical engineering degree in 1990 from Ruhr-University Bochum. Dr. Klimeck's work is documented in over [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/publications/journal.php 150 peer-reviewed journal] and [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/publications/proceedings.php 140 proceedings] publications and over [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/publications/invited-conferences.php 140 invited] and [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/publications/conferences.php 300 contributed] conference presentations. He is a senior member of IEEE and member of APS, HKN and TBP.
NEMO 1-D was recently demonstrated to scale to [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/parallel/ 23,000 parallel processors], NEMO 3-D was demonstrated to scale to [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/parallel/ 8,192 processors], and OMEN was demonstrated to [https://engineering.purdue.edu/gekcogrp/software-projects/omen/scale_32768.php scale to 222.720 processors].
