Three part lecture on metamaterials. Metamaterials are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionality unattainable from naturally occurring materials, thus enabling a family of new “meta-devices”. In these three lectures, we review this new emerging field and significant progress in developing metamaterials. Specifically, we describe recently demonstrated artificial magnetism at high frequencies, including the visible part of the spectrum, negative-index in the optical range, and promising approaches along with challenges in realizing optical cloaking. The new paradigm of engineering space for light with transformation optics will be also discussed.

Electrochemical materials and its application to energy storage and conversion devices, such as batteries and fuel cells are a rapidly growing field, particularly for portable technologies and electric and hybrid vehicles. This course will deliver an introduction to the modeling and simulation of rechargeable batteries by starting from basic electrochemistry principles. Applications to currently existing and emerging rechargeable batteries (lithium-ion batteries in particular) will be reviewed. …

We will apply simple yet powerful ideas of physics to gain some understanding of biology. (What is the inertia of a bacteria and how does this affect its behavior?) We will begin with atoms, move to molecules, then macromolecules, then cells, and finally whole systems. For example, how do we see? The answer: photons cause the release of chemicals that create electricity. How do we move? The answer: tiny biomolecular motors break chemical bonds, using the energy to create force and motion with efficiencies that put man-made machines to shame. These motors, and indeed, much of biology at the molecular level, operate at the nanometer (one-billionth of a meter) and picoNewton (1 trillionth of a pound) scales. How can we measure such tiny things? Come find out! No prior biology knowledge or prerequisites, since the course includes a molecular biology primer.

“Nanomaterials,” is an interdisciplinary introduction to processing, structure, and properties of materials at the nanometer length scale. The course will cover recent breakthroughs and assess the impact of this burgeoning field. Specific nanofabrication topics include epitaxy, beam lithographies, self- assembly, biocatalytic synthesis, atom optics, and scanning probe lithography. The unique size- dependent properties (mechanical, thermal, chemical, optical, electronic, and magnetic) that result from nanoscale structure will be explored in the context of technological applications including computation, magnetic storage, sensors, and actuators.

The goal of this series of lectures is to explain the critical concepts in the understanding of the state-of-the-art modeling of nanoelectronic devices such as resonant tunneling diodes, quantum wells, quantum dots, nanowires, and ultra-scaled transistors. Three fundamental concepts critical to the understanding of nanoelectronic devices will be explored: 1) open systems vs. closed systems, 2) non-equilibrium systems vs. close-to-equilibrium systems, and 3) atomistic material representation …

Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime where traditional approaches to MOSFET device physics are less and less suitable This short course describes a way of understanding MOSFETs that is much more suitable than traditional approaches when the channel lengths are of nanoscale dimensions. lecture 1 reviews traditional MOSFET theory, and Lecture 2 presents the new approach in its simplest form. Lectures 3A and 3B describe the mathematical treatment of ballistic …

This course examines the device physics of advanced transistors and the process, device, circuit, and systems considerations that enter into the development of new integrated circuit technologies. The course consists of three parts. Part 1 treats silicon MOS and MOSFET fundamentals as well as second order effects such as gate leakage and quantum mechanical effects. Short channel effects, device scaling, and fabrication processes and reliability are the subject of Part 2. In Part …

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.
