This course is an in-depth, hands-on exposure to the producing and tailoring of the materials used in nanofabrication. The course will cover chemical materials production techniques such as colloidal chemistry; atmosphere, low-pressure and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition; nebulization; and atomic layer deposition. It will also cover physical techniques such as sputtering; thermal and electron beam evaporation; and spin-on approaches. This course is designed to give students experience in producing a wide variety of materials tailored for their mechanical, electrical, optical, magnetic, and biological properties.

In the last 50 years, solid state devices like transistors have evolved from an interesting laboratory experiment to a technology with applications in all aspects of modern life. Making transistors is a complex process that requires unprecedented collaboration among material scientists, solid state physicists, chemists, numerical analysts, and software professionals. And yet, as you will see in part 1 of this course (first 5 weeks), that the basics of current flow though solid state …

The modern solar cell was invented at Bell Labs in 1954 and is currently receiving renewed attention as a potential contribution to addressing the world\‘s energy challenge. This set of five tutorials is an introduction to solar cell technology fundamentals. It begins with a broad overview of solar cells and continues with a discussion of carrier generation and recombination in silicon solar cells. The tutorials continue with an overview of solar cell modeling and …

Electronic Structure of Monolayer MoS2

Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) is a member of the transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD)  family of semiconductors. TMDs are layered materials weakly bounded through Van der Waals interactions, hence these materials can be exfoliated just like graphene. Monolayer TMDs exhibit very interesting electronic and mechanical properties and they are considered as promising candidates to post-silicon electronics. In this simulation we look at the electronic structure of single layer MoS2 and compare with the electronic band structure of bulk MoS2 (look at the post titled "Electronic Structure of Bulk MoS2").

Electronic Structure of Bulk MoS2

Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) is a member of the transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD)  family of semiconductors. TMDs are layered materials weakly bounded through Van der Waals interactions while the individual monolayers are held together by ionic-covalent bonding. In this simulation we look at the electronic structure of this semiconductor and compare with the electronic band structure of an individual monolayer  (look at the post titled "Electronic Structure of Monolayer MoS2").

GGA-PBE Prediction of TiC Bulk Modulus

Titanium Carbide (TiC) is a refractory ceramic with hardness close to 9.5( Mohs) and its  bulk modulus has been measured to be 240 GPa. In this simulation we use the PBE flavor of GGA to predict the bulk modulus of TiC. GGA predicts the bulk modulus of TiC to be 220GPa, it should be noted that GGA tends to underestimate the strength of bonds and this explains the discrepancy between experiment and theory.
