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...
Modeling Coulomb Effects in Nanoscale Devices
26 Apr 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Shaikh S. Ahmed, David K. Ferry
We describe the development of the modeling efforts focused towards proper description of the threshold voltage fluctuations due to the discrete impurity effects (different number and different distribution of the impurities from device to device on the same chip).NSF, ONRW.
