SiLENSe 2.0
May 23, 2005

SiLENSe 2.0 has been released. New version is capable of simulating heterostructures made not only of group-III nitrides, but also of other wurtzite semiconductors (for example, ZnMgO alloys) including hybrid structures. Advanced numerical algorithms improving convergence of computations and built-in visualization of simulation results are incorporated into the package.
