The purpose of this independent study is to give students hands-on experience in using computers to model neural systems. A neural system is a system of interconnected neural elements, or units. Students will use existing computer programs which will simulate real neural systems. They will compare the behavior of the model units with neurophysiological data on real neurons. The neural system models will all perform a useful computation, and the similarity between the behaviors of model units …

In quantum mechanics the time-independent Schrodinger\‘s equation can be solved for eigenfunctions (also called eigenstates or wave-functions) and corresponding eigenenergies (or energy levels) for a stationary physical system. The wavefunction itself can take on negative and positive values and could be complex. The square magnitude of the wave-function is the probability density of finding the particle in space at that particular energy level.

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.

In this lecture we carry out simulations in-class, with guidance from the instructors. We use the LAMMPS tool (within the nanoHUB simulation toolkit for this course). Examples include calculating the energy per atom of different fullerenes and nantubes, computing the Young’s modulus of a nanotube with and without a Stone-Wales defect, and examining the effects of temperature.Nanoscale Science and Engineering C242/Physics C203 University of California, Berkeley

An introduction to the emerging area of nanotechnology will be studied. The primary focus will be on the technologies of nanotechnology, with specific emphasis on electronics and electrical measurements. Instruments and techniques used in nanotechnology will be described and explored which include but are not limited to scanning probe microscopy, surface analysis and electron microscopy. Nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles will be covered. Applications of nanotechnologies in various disciplines will be introduced along with social implications of this exciting new area. This course also incorporates laboratory exercises to provide hands on design and analysis.

The main goal of this learning module is to introduce students to the atomic-level processes responsible for plastic deformation in crystalline metals and help them develop a more intuitive understanding of how materials work at molecular scales. The module consists of: i) Two introductory lectures (50 minutes each) available online as audiovisual presentations and, ii) Hands-on lab involving online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations via nanoHUB.org.

The goal of this short course is to provide an introduction to the theory and algorithms behind MD simulations, describe some of the most exciting recent developments in the field and exemplify with a few applications applications. The series also includes a tutorial on the nanoMATERIALS simulation tool, an online MD simulation tool available at the nanoHUB. This provides users with a hands-on experience with MD simulations and enables further exploration of some of the concepts described in the lectures.

This set of ten presentations accompanied a graduate level course on Molecular Dynamics simulation. The specific objective of the course (and the presentations) is to provide: 1. Awareness of the opportunities and limitations of Molecular Dynamics as a tool for scientific and engineering research 2. Understanding of the compromise between model complexity/realism and computational expense 3. Background that enables interpretation of Molecular Dynamics-based studies reported in the literature

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 …

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 …
