Dear Gabriele Penazzi

Tanks for your guidance. Generally, how I can calculate the transport
properties of  p-type SiNW by DFTB+NEGF?
can I add extra charge to SiNW, instead in the impurity dopping in SiNW
and then calculate the its transport properties.

Tanks in advance,
Best Regards,
Nadia Salami.
