The nanoHUB-U initiative seeks to bring the new insights and approaches being developed in nanoscience into the traditional fields of engineering and applied science, and to do this in a way that is broadly accessible to students without a long string of prerequisites.

Note: For an expanded version of these lectures see Datta’s 2008 NCN@Purdue Summer School presentations on Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance.

How does the resistance of a conductor change as we shrink its length all the way down to a few atoms? This is a question that has intrigued scientists for a long time, but it is only during the last twenty years that it has become possible for experimentalists to provide clear answers, leading to enormous progress in our …

Please Note: A newer version of this course is now available

and we would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the new format and contents.

Welcome to the ECE 453 lectures.

The development of “nanotechnology” has made it possible to engineer material and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such “nanostructures” cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility or diffusion coefficient and a …

A scanning probe microscope brushes the tips of molecules rising up from a gold substrate. After making contact, the probe measures a very strange current-voltage relationship--linear portions separated by flat spots or sharp increases. Definitely not Ohm's law. Is the experiment correct? What does theory predict?

This learning module teaches the basic concepts of molecular conduction. It starts with an introduction to the theory by Supriyo Datta, followed by a review of experimental results. Then, it walks you through a series of hands-on examples and exercises, where you can simulate molecular conduction right in your web browser! Finish up by taking a quiz to test your understanding of the concepts.

The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the “bottom-up” approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics.


Day 1: What and where is the resistance? Day 2: Quantum transport Day 3: Spins and magnets Day 4: Maxwell’s demon Day 5: Correlations and entanglement

BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology have the potential to make significant impact in a wide range of fields and applications. This lecture series introduces the basic concepts and topics underlying the interdisciplinary areas of BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology. Advances in this field require the knowledge of polymer processing and soft lithography in addition to silicon-inspired fabrication. Since the primary aim of many of these devices and systems is to form sensors for biological and chemical entities, an introduction to DNA, proteins, and microbiology is also essential. These devices and systems are designed to handle fluids at these small scale and hence the basic concepts of microfluidics need to be reviewed. Means to transport fluids and biological entities in these devices are necessary for the proper functioning and design of integrated devices, that can perform complete analysis on biological and chemical samples. These key topics are reviewed in this lecture series to equip the listener to get engaged deeper in these exciting areas of research.
