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 course will introduce the students to the basic concepts and postulates of quantum mechanics. Examples will include simple systems such as particle in an infinite and finite well, 1D and 2D harmonic oscillator and tunneling. Numerous approximation techniques, such as WKB method, time-dependent and time-independent perturbation theory, variational methods and numerical solution methods of the 1D SchrÃ¶dinger equation, will be presented. The importance of quantum-mechanics in todays life …

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 …
