In addition to the flake itself, the image also shows the wave function of a
low energy eigenstate. The size of each circle is proportional to the wave
function probability amplitude on that site. It can be clearly seen that the
wave function is peaked near the zigzag segments of the boundary, as `expected

One of the most common applications of Kwant is to calculate the conductance of
a nanoelectronic system. The plot on the left shows the conductance through a
2-d electron gas as a function of magnetic flux. The quantization of
conductance that is visible (plateaus) is the hallmark of the quantum Hall
effect. The third plateau does not develop due to a constriction in the system
that leads to backscattering. The scattering wave function from the left lead
at magnetic field strength corresponding to the middle of the third QHE plateau
is shown on the right.
Taken from example 6 of the `Kwant paper

Kwant allows systems of any dimensionality, for example three-dimensional ones.
This image shows a 3-d model of a semiconducting quantum wire (gray cylinder).
The red region is a tunnel barrier, used to measure tunneling conductance, the
blue region is a superconducting electrode. In this simulated device, a
Majorana bound state appears close to the superconducting-normal interface.

Numerical simulations and experimental results for a flying qubit sample made in
a GaAs/GaAlAs heterostrucutre. The Kwant simulations were performed with
particular attention to a realistic model of the confining potential seen by the
electrons. This allows for rather subtle aspects of the experiment could be
reproduced. Such "numerical experiments" can not only be used to interpret the
experimental data but also can help to design the sample geometry and in to
choose the right materials.
