Exploration of the Oxidation Rate of Silicon Wafers via Simulation
04 Nov 2014 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Tanya Faltens
This teaching resource is designed for instructors who would like to introduce exploration through simulation into their lessons on silicon oxidation. Step-by-step instructions are provided for running the process lab oxidation simulation, and guiding questions are provided that should help students discover important trends in the oxidation rate when different process parameters are changed.

Displays drain current as a function of source-drain voltage for different values of gate voltage, gate dimensions, substrate material, and oxide material in an n-type MOSFET.
Quick and Easy Guide to Carbon Structure Simulations using Crystal Viewer Tool
30 Sep 2013 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Tanya Faltens
These are step-by-step instructions for creating simulations of carbon nanostructures:
- buckly ball
- carbon nanotubes
- graphene sheets
These instructions will allow teachers to run simulations that students can use along with, or instead of, building 3D models of structures.
In NanoDays 2013 at Purdue, students in the 4th grade quickly learned to run these simulations, and were able to teach other students how to enter parameters and simulate new structures.
This is a very...
Reproducing DFT calculations of Al2O3/GaAs interface structure and Fermi level pinning
18 Mar 2015 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan
The goal of this resource is to demonstrate how to reproduce the results of the following research paper using the nanoMATERIALS SeqQuest DFT simulation tool on nanoHUB. In addition to reproducing the paper's results, users can run variations of the simulation to explore the physics and conduct their own research. Hegde, G., Strachan, A., & Klimeck, G. (2011). Role of surface orientation on atomic layer deposited Al2O3/GaAs interface structure and...
