In This Workshop

  1. Lessons from Nanoelectronics

    20 Jul 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

    Everyone is familiar with the amazing performance of a modern laptop, powered by a billion-plus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. What is not as appreciated is the deeper understanding of current flow, energy exchange and device operation that...

  2. Lessons from Nanoelectronics (Q&A)

    20 Jul 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

    Q&A session from Lessons from Nanoelectronics.

  3. 2011 NCN Summer School: Welcome and Introduction

    20 Jul 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom

  4. Atomistic Modeling and Simulation Tools for Nanoelectronics and their Deployment on nanoHUB.org - Part 1

    21 Jul 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck

  5. Near-Equilibrium Transport: Fundamentals and Applications

    28 Jul 2011 | Courses | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom

    Engineers and scientists working on electronic materials and devicesneed a working knowledge of "near-equilibrium" (also called "linear"or "low-field") transport. The term "working knowledge" meansunderstanding how to use theory in practice. Measurements ofresistivity, conductivity, mobility,...

  6. Thermal Transport Across Interfaces

    23 Aug 2011 | Courses | Contributor(s): Timothy S Fisher

    These lectures provide a theoretical development of the transport ofthermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials, in which materialinterfaces typically dominate transport. The physical nature of energytransport by two carriers: electrons and phonons--will be explored.

  7. Solar Cell Fundamentals

    19 Aug 2011 | Courses | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom, J. L. Gray, Muhammad A. Alam

    The modern solar cell was invented at Bell Labs in 1954 and is currently receiving renewed attention as a potential contribution to addressing the world's energy challenge. This set of five tutorials is an introduction to solar cell technology fundamentals. It begins with a broad overview of...

  8. Spin Transport and Topological Insulators I

    29 Aug 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

    A major development of the last two decades, the physical and conceptual integration of what used to be two distinct unrelated fields, namely spintronics and magnetics.

  9. Spin Transport and Topological Insulators II

    19 Aug 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

    A major development of the last two decades, the physical and conceptual integration of what used to be two distinct unrelated fields, namely spintronics and magnetics.

  10. Atomistic Material Science

    03 Nov 2011 | Courses | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan

    This course introduces first principles electronic structure calculations of materials properties and the concept of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of materials focusing on the physics and approximations underlying the simulations and interpretation of their results.
