Fall 2008

This is a newly produced version of the course that was
formerly available.
We would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the new format and contents.

Objective:

To convey the basic concepts of nanoelectronics to electrical
engineering students with no background in quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics.

Description:

The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to
engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic
distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in
terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility or diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or
atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual
framework that underlies this microscopic viewpoint using examples related to the
emerging field of nanoelectronics.

Fall 2009 Teaching: Lecture notes are available from the Fall 2009 teaching of this course and closely parallel the online lectures.

Credits

Lecture Notes: Lecture notes were produced by Panagopoulos Georgios.

Lecture Notes from the Fall 2009 teaching were produced by Mehdi Salmani Jelodar.

    Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor

    by Supriyo Datta (Cambridge - July 11, 2005)

    This book presents a unique approach to the fundamentals of quantum transport, and is aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students. Some of the most advanced concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics are included and yet no prior acquaintance with quantum mechanics is assumed.
