Abstract
The simulation of nanostructures for sensor and circuit applications requires new concepts, namely electronic structure calculations based on the atomic configuration of the involved materials. We give a short overview of the available concepts. Semi-empirical methods and the density functional theory are highlighted. The concepts are illustrated by several examples. Presenting results obtained from metal nanowires, CNT-metal-contacts and strained CNTs, we demonstrate that electronic structure calculations based on quantum theory are essential for an adequate simulation of nanostructures.
