In This Workshop

  1. Tutorial 1: Electrical Fluctuations at the Nanoscale

    23 Mar 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): N.S.Vidhyadhiraja

    This lecture will review the phenomenology and theoretical approaches associated with the study of electrical current fluctuations.

  2. Tutorial 2: A Bottom-Up View of Heat Transfer in Nanomaterials

    23 Mar 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Timothy S Fisher

    This lecture provides a theoretical development of the transport of thermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials. The physical nature of energy transport by two carriers—electrons and phonons--will be explored from basic principles using a common Landauer framework. Issues including the quantum...

  3. Tutorial 3a: Materials Simulation by First-Principles Density Functional Theory I

    14 Sep 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Umesh V. Waghmare

    This lecture provides an introduction to first-principles density functional theory based methods for simulation of materials, with a focus on determination of interatomic force constants and vibrational spectra of nano-structures and extended periodic materials.Outline:, a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
