Abstract

image
The NASA Institute for Nanoelectronics and Computing and NSF Network for Computating Nanotechnology offers qualifying students the opportunity to become Summer Undergraduate Research Interns (SURIs). SURIs join an ongoing cross-disciplinary research project team comprised of faculty and graduate students who have been working on research projects throughout the year. Below is a collection of online presentations made by the students describing their research work for the summer.

Sponsored by

The SURI Program is sponsored by the NASA Institute for Nanoelectronics and Computing and NSF Network for Computating Nanotechnology under NASA grant no. NCC 2-1363 and NSF grant no. EEC-0228390.

  1. Characterization of Colloids Using the BET method and X-ray Scattering

    03 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Oluwaseyi Ogebule

    Colloids are promising materials for a wide range of applications such as selective separations, catalytic processing, and enhanced chemical activity. However, these applications are limited without proper knowledge of colloidal bulk properties. Therefore, the characterization of colloids is...

  2. Chemical Modification of GaAs with TAT Peptide and Alkylthiol Self-Assembled Monolayers

    03 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Hamsa Jaganathan

    The use of self-assembled monolayers (SAM) on semiconductors creates a basis for the design and creation of bioelectronics, such as biosensors. The interface between the surface and an organic monolayer can change significant electrical and physiochemical properties of a biological device....

  3. DNA Nanowires

    06 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Margarita Shalaev

    DNA is a relatively inexpensive and ubiquitous material that can be used as a scaffold for constructing nanowires. Our research focuses on the manufacturing of DNA-templated, magnetic nanowires. This is accomplished by synthesizing positively-charged metal nanoparticles that self-assemble along...

  4. Electrodeposition of Palladium as an Ohmic Contact for Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    03 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Brent Penque, David Janes

    Carbon nanotubes are being researched extensively for their unique conductive properties. Controlled growth of vertical single-walled carbon nanotubes, however, has not yet been possible. This presentation reports a way to synthesize vertical single-walled carbon nanotubes that can be used for...

  5. Investigation of the Electrical Characteristics of Triple-Gate FinFETs and Silicon-Nanowire FETs

    08 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Monica Taba, Gerhard Klimeck

    Electrical characteristics of various Fin field-effect transistors (FinFETs) and silicon-nanowires were analyzed and compared using a modified three-dimensional self-consistent quantum-mechanical simulator in order to investigate device performance. FinFETs have been proposed to fulfill the...

  6. NEMO 3D: Intel optimizations and Multiple Quantum Dot Simulations

    03 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Anish Dhanekula, Gerhard Klimeck

    NEMO-3D is a nanoelectronic modeling tool that analyzes the electronic structure of nanoscopic devices. Nanoelectronic devices such as Quantum Dots (QDs) can contain millions of atoms,. Therefore, simulating their electronic structure, can take up to several days. In order to simulate and...

  7. Surface Analysis of Organic Monlayers Using FTIR and XPS

    02 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jamie Nipple, Michael Toole, David Janes

    Current research concerning self-assembled monolayers (SAM) focuses on the fabrication of microelectronics utilizing a semiconductor/molecule/metal junction. This study seeks to investigate various experimental techniques for creation of organic monolayers by surface analysis techniques...

  8. Technique for High Spatial Resolution, Focused Electrical Stimulation for Electrically Excitable Tissue

    08 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Matteo Mannino

    Cochlear implant devices have made use of electrode pulses as a method of nerve fiber stimulation since their early conception. Electrode stimulation is limiting in both quality and consistency, and a new method is required if significant improvements to implant devices are to be made. By using...

  9. Three-Dimensional Simulations of Field Effect Sensors for DNA Detection

    03 Aug 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eddie Howell, Gerhard Klimeck

    Here, the development of a DNA field-effect transistor (DNAFET) simulator is described. In DNAFETs the gate structure of a silicon on insulator (SOI) field-effect transistor is replaced by a layer of immobilized single-stranded DNA molecules which act as surface probe molecules. When...
