Help: Wiki Formatting
Wiki markup is a core feature for Topic pages, tightly integrating all the other parts of Trac into a flexible and powerful whole.
nanoHUB has a built in small and powerful wiki rendering engine. This wiki engine implements an ever growing subset of the commands from other...
Help: Wiki Page Names
Wiki Page Names
Wiki page names commonly use the CamelCase convention. Within wiki text, any word in CamelCase automatically becomes a hyperlink to the wiki page with that name.
CamelCase page names must follow these rules:
The name must consist of alphabetic characters only. No digits,...
Help: Wiki HTML
The wiki supports inserting HTML into any wiki context.
HTML support is built-in, and does not require installing any additional packages.
How to Use HTML
To inform the wiki engine that a block of text should be treated as HTML, use the html processor.
This example should...
Help: Wiki Math
The Wiki supports LaTeX markup:
Mathematical Formula (LaTeX) can be inserted into text like this:
Insert formula here
…displays alpha2 + beta2 = 1

The Wiki uses a subset of TeX markup, including some...
ABACUS—Introduction to Semiconductor Devices
When we hear the term semiconductor device, we may think first of the transistors in PCs or video game consoles, but transistors are the basic component in all of the electronic devices we use in our daily lives. Electronic systems are built from such components as transistors, capacitors,...
Electronics from the Bottom Up: A New Approach to Nanoelectronic Devices and Materials
The Network for Computational Nanotechnology seeks to bring a new perspective to engineering education to meet the challenges and opportunities of modern nanotechnology. Fifty years ago our field faced a similar challenge brought on by the advent of the transistor and it was met...
Data Preservation Practices
Scientific research must be reproducible. If is it not reproducible, it is not science. When you publish a paper, you must include enough information so that others could, in principle, re-produce the results of your work. You also want to be sure that...
