Journal of Computational Electronics brings together research on all aspects of modeling and simulation of modern electronics. This includes optical, electronic, mechanical, and quantum mechanical aspects, as well as research on the underlying mathematical algorithms and computational details. The newer related areas of molecular and biological systems, in which the thrust is on the transport, mechanical, and optical properties, will also be covered. The Editors will emphasize advances and challenges arising from applications in multiscale problems focusing on those whose basis arises from physical and chemical sciences. A short list of the specific topics that lie within the scope of this new journal is as follows:
Transport physics of ultrasmall structures;
Role of quantum effects -the transition from classical to quantum environment;
2D and 3D device simulations.
Semiconductor laser diodes (VCSELs and VCSEL arrays, etc.);
Detectors (limits of high speeds and low signal intensities, etc.);
Coupling to the electromagnetics.
Ab initio models;
Molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo.
Quantum mechanical and quantum electrodynamical forces;
Transition to classical approaches;
Implementation on parallel systems;
Special problems with quantum mechanics.
Biological systems, ion channels, etc.;
Optical, mechanical and electronic interactions in molecular systems.
Open Quantum Systems:
Special computational problems in quantum systems;
