nanoHUB - Educational Tour de Force
14 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): David K. Ferry
nanoHUB was originally created to bring together the computational electronics world as a place where programs and results could be efficiently shared. For that purpose, it has matured and grown to where it is a major force in the area. But, it can also be a great tool for education, an application for which we have several years of experience. ...

Using NanoHub in Undergraduate Education
25 Jun 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): David K. Ferry
nanoHUB.org has now been with us for quite some time. It has developed a suite of software simulation tools that is used extensively throughout the research community around the world. Some years back, I was tasked to find a way to create a laboratory for our course on “Electronic Materials and Devices.” This course spans from introductory quantum mechanics, through materials, to how real devices work. But, creating a laboratory to accompany the lectures was not conceptually easy, as the term laboratory usually refers to a physical space with significant quantities of characterization equipment...
