Tuning and interpretation of electronic transport properties with m*2T
Electronic transport coefficients such as the electrical conductivity, the termo-power, and the charge carrier concentration are routinely measured in a variety of application areas such as electronics or thermoelectric power-generation and cooling. Using fitting procedures, those measurements are used to infer microscopic features of the samples. The code m*2T facilitates the estimation of electronic structure parameters such as the effective masses and band energies improving the current approach by increasing the complexity of the band structure representation. The software is designed with a server-client architecture to enhance performance and scalability. The server is implemented in the Julia programming language. We illustrate the design and the efficiency of the code with selected applications, which are relevant to the optimization of thermoelectric materials.
