Gerhard Klimeck
Gerhard Klimeck is the Director of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology at Purdue University and a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He guides the technical developments and strategies of which served over 195,000 users worldwide with on-line simulation, tutorials, and seminars in the year 2011. He was the Technical Group Supervisor of the High Performance Computing Group and a Principal Scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Previously he was a member of technical staff at the Central Research Lab of Texas Instruments where he served as manager and principal architect of the Nanoelectronic Modeling (NEMO 1-D) program.
Dr. Klimeck received his Ph.D. in 1994 on Quantum Transport from Purdue University and his German electrical engineering degree in 1990 from Ruhr-University Bochum. Dr. Klimeck?s work is documented in over 175 peer-reviewed journal and 165 proceedings publications and over 170 invited and 350 contributed conference presentations. He is a fellow of the Institute of Physics,a fellow of the American Physical Society, a senior member of IEEE and member of HKN and TBP.

Gerhard Klimeck's aim is not only to advance science and engineering in his own research, but to create modeling and simulation tools other researchers, educators and students can use. Thousands of them have done just that through NanoHUB, which among other things makes an educational version of NEMO 3-D available in a web interface.
NanoHUB is a TeraGrid science gateway, portals designed to make doing research on the grid easier. Production-level, stable service is critical to the success of the gateways, says Klimeck. They must be turn-key for end users who aren't computational scientists. Klimeck likens the situation to making computation as easy as making phone calls or driving cars, without being a telephone technician or an auto mechanic.
Overall, is hosting more than 90 simulation tools tapped by more than 6,200 users who ran more than 300,000 simulations in the past 12 months. The hosted codes range in computational intensity from very lightweight to extremely intensive like NEMO 3-D and OMEN. The site serviced more than 68,000 users in 172 countries with a system uptime of more than 99.4-percent. More than 44 classes used the resource for teaching. Klimeck said it has become an infrastructure people rely on for day-to-day operations.
With NEMO 1-D, looking at nanoscale electronic structures was like examining a sandwich layer-by-layer for Gerhard Klimeck and his colleagues, first one slice of bread, then the meat, cheese, mustard, the bread topper, all uniform, just a few atoms thick.
Klimeck's group also used TeraGrid resources at NCSA, PSC, IU, ORNL and Purdue University's Rosen Center of Advanced Computing's Condor pool, which draws unused computing cycles from idle machines around campus and elsewhere.
"These are extremely intensive calculations," said Klimeck, a Purdue electrical and computer engineering professor. "The more processors you have, the faster you can get your work done. OMEN should scale up almost linearly, he said. The idea is to eventually use it on the coming generation of petascale supercomputers, capable of breaking the barrier of a 1,000-trillion calculations per second.
Klimeck received an NSF PetaApps award for NEMO 3-D and OMEN development to make petascale engineering simulations for nano-electronic devices routine. He's already employed the software in multimillion- atom simulations matching experimental results for nanoscale semiconductors.
"We're compute driven," said Klimeck, who also is the associate director for technologies of Purdue's Network for Computational Nanotechnology/ NanoHub., 23 Feb 2012 [cached]
It shows that Moores Law can be scaled toward atomic scales in silicon, said Gerhard Klimeck, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue and leader of the project there. Moores Law refers to technology improvements by the semiconductor industry that have doubled the number of transistors on a silicon chip roughly every 18 months for the past half-century. That has led to accelerating increases in performance and declining prices. The technologies for classical computing can survive to the atomic scale, Dr. Klimeck said.
If the semiconductor industry remains on its current pace, it might be possible to reach that limit within two decades, Dr. Klimeck noted.
