The simulation tools and resources available at offer significant opportunities for both research and education in computational nanoelectronics. Users can run simulations on existing powerful computational tools rather than developing yet another niche simulator. The worldwide visibility of nanoHUB provides tool authors with an unparalleled venue for publishing their tools. We have deployed a new quantum transport simulator, OMEN, a state-of-the-art research tool, as the engine driving two tools on nanoHUB. The educational resources of nanoHUB are one of the most important aspects of the project, according to user surveys. New collections of tools into unified curricula have found a receptive audience in many university classrooms. The underlying cyberinfrastructure of nanoHUB has been packaged as a generic software platform called HUBzero. The Rappture toolkit, which generates simulation GUIs, is part of HUBzero.
