Physical simulation of thin film processing, and thermal, electrical, and electromagnetic phenomena. This work has lead to the development of a suite of physical software tools (SIMBAD/3D-FILMS/Atar) marketed world-wide for simulation and modeling of material parameters and device characteristics of microelectronic systems, nano-structured materials and thin films. Work is ongoing in the development of an multi-energy domain opto-electronic simulator (Optispice) in collaboration with Optiwave (Ottawa).


The SIMBAD simulation suite has been widely applied in the development of Silicon chip technology and in the creation of nano-structured thin films. Optispice has a wide variety of applications in optical, sensor and telecommunications systems.


  • Ongoing collaborations with a number of international (IBM) and local companies (Optiwave)
