SIMON 2.0 Educational by Chris Wasshuber

#2 in Nonfiction hot-list

SIMON is a sophisticated multipurpose simulator for single-electron devices and circuits. It features a graphical circuit editor embedded in a graphical user interface as well as the simulation of co-tunnel events and a single step interactive analysis mode. It supports energy dependent density of states and is able to calculate stability plots.

[Please note that this software is for 32bit architectures. But you can run it for example on 64bit Windows 7 PC with 'Windows XP Mode' and 'Windows Virtual PC'. Alternatively you can use a virtual machine:

  • downloaded Virtua Box: (With this program one can create virtual computers in any system.)
  • Create a partition for Win XP and install Win XP SP3 32bit by means of an .iso file.
  • Once Win is installed activate the USB sharing between the virtual machine and the real one and transfer Simon21.exe file.
  • Install Simon.

Features of SIMON 2.0:

    • traditional stability plot with two voltages as x- and y-axis
    • one axis can be the temperature
    • one or both axis can be a capacitance or resistance
    • differentiation in x or y direction possible
    • normal resistors allow the modeling of more complex and realistic circuits
    • current sources can be specified with a certain charge-granularity, which allows the modeling of electron injectors/pumps/turnstiles in a very easy manner
    • The tunnel model has been improved by incorporating three kinds of density of states functions
      • constant with optional bandgap (metallic)
      • square-root with bandgap (semiconductor-like)
      • x/(x2-1)1/2 with bandgap (superconductor-like)
    • discrete energy levels are modeled as gaussian functions, with mean, width, and height.
    • quasiparticle tunneling
    • SIMON is shipped in a software package where all necessary libraries (tcl/tk) are wrapped into the application. Hence no need to install any 3rd party tools to run SIMON on Linux. The installation is as easy as copying a file into a subdirectory.
    • simple automatic installation for Windows operating systems
    • graphical user interface
    • graphical circuit editor (drag and drop assembly of circuits; few mouse clicks and your circuit is assembled)
    • graphical visualization of simulation results (you can plot many graphs in one diagram; compare results from different simulations)
    • co-tunneling is simulated up to a user specified order
    • two different co-tunnel simulation algorithms are available
    • single electrons can be forced to tunnel through particular tunnel junctions in an interactive fashion
    • the system energy, all node voltages, and all node charges are updated automatically
