The goals of this course are to give the student an understanding of the elements of semiconductor physics and principles of semiconductor devices that (a) constitute the foundation required for an electrical engineering major to take follow-on courses, and (b) represent the essential basic knowledge of the operation and limitations of the three primary electronic devices, 1) p-n junctions, 2) bipolar transistors, and 3) field effect transistors, that either an electrical engineer or a computer engineer will find useful in maintaining currency with new developments in semiconductor devices and integrated circuits in an extended career in either field.

5 Ways To Creating Better Content

Content marketing is one of the most buzzed about terms in the marketing game. For what reason? It works! I should say, it can work with the right strategy and execution. Even with highly-budgeted distribution, poor content is at a disadvantage against great content when it comes to quality conversions. So what does quality content look like? How do we create relevant content for our audiences and how do we measure success?

           In this lecture, we looked at lumerical optical simulation. The motivation to pursue this topic is because there is now software available that allows us to conduct simulations to visualize Electromagnetic field locations, to predict sensitivity, and optimize the device design. The software most widely used for modeling low light interactions is Finite Difference Time Domain(FDTD). The pros and options of the software are then …

Atomistic and molecular simulations have become an important research field due to the progress made in computer performance and the necessity of new and improved materials. Despite this, first principle simulations of large molecules are still not possible because the high computational time and resources required. Other methods, such as molecular dynamics, allow the simplification of calculations by defining energy terms to describe multiple atom interactions without compromising accuracy...

Current nuclear reactor components consist of forged or casted Iron-based or Nickel-based alloys.  Both these fabrication techniques present challenges in long-term performance and structural integrity. A possible alternative investigated in this research includes Powder Metallurgy (PM) combined with Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP).  Contributions to the research consisted of polishing, etching, and measuring the hardness and grain structures of the samples investigated.

Powder Compaction is a manufacturing technology which is used to mold granular particles to solid materials. Powder compaction is widely used by pharmaceutical companies to manufacture tablets with desired properties. It is imperative to understand the mechanics underneath the constituent granular particles that eventually contribute to properties of the manufactured tablets because properties of the final products are results of the microstructures that evolve during compaction...

We present the Optimized Workflow for Electronic and Thermoelectric Properties (OWETP) python notebook, which uses Density Functional Theory (DFT) as implemented in the Quantum Espresso code for electronic properties of materials. The OWETP python notebook also enables connecting to the Materials Project database, and the nanoHUB tool Landauer Transport Properties (LanTraP) for thermoelectric calculations.

Phase transforming cellular materials (PXCMs) are a new class of materials that can go through large deformation and return to their original configuration. Currently, there are reliable cellular materials that can resist large deformation, for example, honey comb; however, when these materials are compared to PXCMs, they cannot stay in their elastic range. The biggest advantage about PXCMs is that they are not only inexpensive materials, but they are also highly-durable and they absorb and...

In this tutorial, I will present a brief overview of the ways that transmission electron microscopy can be used to characterize nanoscale materials. This tutorial will emphasize what TEM does well, as well where difficulties arise. In particular, I will discuss in an overview manner how diffraction, imaging and spectroscopy function in the TEM, and how these techniques can be combined to provide a detailed characterization of nanoscale structures. Some emphasis on sample preparation requirements, image artifacts and low sampling statistics will be detailed as well. I hope that at the end of this brief tutorial, you will have a better sense as to when the TEM might help you answer particular questions in your research.

This course will provide students with the fundamentals of computational problem-solving techniques that are used to understand and predict properties of nanoscale systems. Emphasis will be placed on how to use simulations effectively, intelligently, and cohesively to predict properties that occur at the nanoscale for real systems. The course is designed to present a broad overview of computational nanoscience and is therefore suitable for both experimental and theoretical researchers. Specific …
