Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
20 Aug 2008 | Courses | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics.
Metamaterials: A New Paradigm of Physics and Engineering
01 May 2008 | Courses | Contributor(s): Vladimir M. Shalaev
Three part lecture on metamaterials. Metamaterials are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionality unattainable from naturally occurring materials, thus enabling a family of new “meta-devices”. In these three lectures, we review this new emerging …
Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor (Spring 2004)
23 May 2006 | Courses | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials 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 and diffusion …
