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 …

Mahesh Anigol onto Quantum Transport @ 3:53 am on 05 Jul 2016

The non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) formalism provides a powerful conceptual and computational framework for treating quantum transport in nanodevices. It goes beyond the Landauer approach for ballistic, non-interacting electronics to include inelastic scattering and strong correlation …

Mahesh Anigol onto The NEGF Approach to Nano-Device Simulation @ 9:21 am on 03 Jun 2016

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 …

Mahesh Anigol onto ECE 495N: Fundamentals of Nanoelectronics @ 11:59 pm on 08 Sep 2015

Please Note: A newer version of this course is now available

and we would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the new format and contents.

Welcome to the ECE 453 lectures.

The development of “nanotechnology” has made it possible to engineer material and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such “nanostructures” cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility or diffusion coefficient and a …

This set of lecture notes is intended to help students learn the basics of PN junction theory and modeling.

Mahesh Anigol onto PN Junction Theory and Modeling @ 2:24 pm on 08 Sep 2015

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.
