This article is part of our series: a day in the software life. In this series, we will be asking researchers from all disciplines to discuss the tools that make their research possible.

We research software engineers live in great times. Granted, our work is not as valued as it should be and we struggle for funding. However, looking at the vast availability of free open source…

The simulation of semiconductor devices and processes in academia lacks support for the open-source movement. Consequently, simulation tools are implemented over and over again by different research groups, constantly reinventing the wheel and wasting time and effort that could be used to move the field forward. A reluctance to share code with the community further contributes to the problem. What's going on?
