As electronic circuits get progressingly smaller to the nanometre scale, the quantum wave nature of the electrons starts to play a dominant role. It is thus possible for the devices to operate by controlling the phase of the quantum electron waves rather than the electron density as in present-day devices. This paper presents a highly accurate numerical method to treat quantum waveguides with arbitrarily complex geometry. Based on this model, a variety of quantum effects can be studied and quantified.
