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.

This is a newly produced version of the course that was formerly available. We would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the new format and contents.

Objective:

To convey the basic concepts of nanoelectronics to electrical engineering students with no background in quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics.

Description:

The development of “nanotechnology” has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers …

Miller indices are a notation system in crystallography for planes and directions in crystal lattices. In particular, a family of lattice planes is determined by three integers, l, m, and n, the Miller indices. They are written (lmn) and denote planes orthogonal to a direction (l,m,n) in the basis of the reciprocal lattice vectors.

Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have interesting, structure-dependent electronic properties. In particular, CNTs can be a metallic or semiconducting depending on the way in which the carbon atoms are arranged in the CNT walls. The purpose of this learning module is to familiarize students with the basic concepts associated with CNT electronic properties. It begins with a pre-test to assess initial student knowledge of the topic, followed by a presentation and reading material on the electronic properties of CNTs. This is followed by some exercises that utilize the CNTbands tool on the nanoHUB for computing key electronic properties of CNTs. Finally, a post-test is administered to determine the degree to which the module assisted in student learning of the fundamental concepts associated with the electronic properties of CNTs.

After interviewing hundreds of scientists, Mr. Alda became convinced that many researchers have wonderful stories to tell, but some need help in telling them. Mr. Alda played an important role in the creation of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, and has led workshops that use improvisational theater games to help scientists communicate more directly and personally.

This lecture series introduces the basic concepts and key 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 knowledge of silicon-inspired fabrication. Since the end goal of these devices and systems is to form sensors for biological and chemical entities, this introduction covers DNA, proteins, microbiology, and microfluidics to equip the listeners\’ deeper engagement in these exciting areas of research.

This course will cover the basic concepts of design of integrated nanomedical systems for diagnostics and therapeutics. Topics to be covered include: why nanomedical approaches are needed, cell targeting strategies, choice of core nanomaterials, technologies for testing composition and structure of multilayered nanomedical systems, optimizing zeta potentials, design and testing of cell and intracellular targeting systems, in-vivo issues, drug delivery and proper dosing, assessing efficacy of drug/gene delivery, nanotoxicity, animal testing, and regulatory issues. In addition to attending lectures and participating in classroom discussions, students will write and present an original research nanomedical system design project. This course will serve as an interdisciplinary training for doctoral students in Biomedical Engineering and other fields for a basic understanding of the principles and challenges of nanomedicine.
