The objective of this exercise is to start with the simple Kronig-Penney model and understand formations of bands and gaps in the dispersion relation that describes the motion of carriers in 1D periodic potentials. The second exercise examines the behavior of the bands at the Brillouin zone boundaries. Finally, a simplified tight-binding approach for 1D lattice has to be derived as part of the third exercise..

I shall present and discuss theoretical studies of the quantum dynamics of a prototypical photosynthetic light harvesting complex, the Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) complex, that analyze the nature and extent of two characteristic features of quantum processors, namely quantum speedup and quantum entanglement, in these biological systems.

This primer quickly summarize some important semiconductor fundamentals. For those acquainted with semiconductors, this may be useful as a brief refresher. For those just getting started with semiconductors, my hope is that this primer provides just enough understanding to allow you to begin exploring semiconductor devices.

Computer simulation is now an essential tool for the research and development of semiconductor processes and devices, but to use a simulation tool intelligently, one must know what\‘s \“under the hood.\” This talk is a tutorial introduction designed for someone using semiconductor device simulation for the first time. After reviewing the semiconductor equations, I will briefly describe how one solves them \“exactly\” on a computer. I\‘ll then discuss an example device simulation program and conclude with some thoughts about how to effectively use simulation in practice.

MOSFET channel lengths are now well below 100nm, and getting smaller, but MOSFETs are still modeled and understood much as they were 30 years ago. Seminal work in the 1960’s laid the foundation for our understanding of the MOSFET, but traditional approaches are based on concepts that lose validity at the nanoscale. This talk is a brief introduction to a new approach that provides a sound conceptual foundation for understanding nanoscale MOSFETs.

A quick review of the traditional theory of the MOSFET along with a review of key device performance metrics. A short discussion of the limits of the traditional (drift-diffusion) approach and the meaning of ballistic transport is also included.

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 …

This new course will give students hands-on experience with popular computational materials science and engineering software through a series of projects in: electronic structure calculation (e.g., VASP), molecular simulation (e.g., GROMACS), phase diagram modeling (e.g., Thermo-Calc), finite element modeling (e.g., OOF2), and materials selection. The course will familiarize students with a broad survey of software tools in computational materials science, scientific computing, and...
