Crystal Structures
08 Jun 2010  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): David K. Ferry, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
In mineralogy and crystallography, a crystal structure is a unique arrangement of atoms in a crystal. A crystal structure is composed of a basis, a set of atoms arranged in a particular way, and a lattice. The basis is located upon the points of a lattice spanned by lattice vectors, which is an array of points repeated periodically in three dimensions. The set of points forming a volume that can completely fill the space of the lattice when translated by integral multiples of the lattice …

Crystal Directions and Miller Indices
08 Jun 2010  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): David K. Ferry, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Miller indices are a notation system in crystallography for planes and directions in crystal lattices. In particular, a family of lattice planes is determined by three integers, l, m, and n, the Miller indices. They are written (lmn) and denote planes orthogonal to a direction (l,m,n) in the basis of the reciprocal lattice vectors.

Homework Assignment: Periodic Potentials
31 Jan 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): David K. Ferry
Using the Periodic Potential Lab on nanoHUB determine the allowed bands for an energy barrier of 5 eV, a periodicity W = 0.5nm, and a barrier thickness of 0.1nm. How do these bands change if the barrier thickness is changed to 0.2 nm?

Finite Height Quantum Well: an Exercise for Band Structure
31 Jan 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): David K. Ferry
Use the Resonant Tunneling Diodes simulation tool on nanoHUB to explore the effects of finite height quantum wells.
Looking at a 2 barrier device, 300 K, no bias, other standard variables, and 3 nm thick barriers and a 7 nm quantum well, determine the energies of the two lowest quasibound states.

MOSfet Homework Assignment  Role of Dielectric Constant and Thickness
31 Jan 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): David K. Ferry
Use the MOSfet tool on nanoHUB to simulate a nchannel MOSFET with the following parameters:
Lsd=LG=45nm (each 15 nodes), oxide thickness of 1.2 nm (K=3.9, 5 nodes),
polySi gate, junction depth of 10 nm (20 nodes), and all other parameters
at their nominal preset values.
Now, change K to 20, and the oxide thickness to 6 nm, and resimulate the
device.
How do the Id vs. VG and Id vs. VD curves compare? (Hint: You need to go into the 'voltage sweep section' and turn on the IdVd sweep.)
