Welcome to the ECE 453 lectures.
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer material 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.
Home Work & Handouts: A full set of home work assignments and exams is available for the Fall 2007 offering as ECE 495N.
Online Lectures: Lectures are available as Breeze presentations using Macromedia Breeze and only require installation of the Flash Player to view. Lecture notes are available as Adobe Acrobat PDF downloads.
The lecture notes have been prepared by Behtash Behinaein (with editting by Desireé Skaggs) from Prof. Datta's regular classroom lectures. The Breeze lectures were prepared by Joe Cychosz and Mike Skaggs.

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.
