2009 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up



Published on


Electronics from the Bottom Up - an innovative educational initiative co-sponsored by Intel, NCN, and Purdue University - introduces students to a new way of thinking about the opportunities and fundamental limits of nanoscale electronics - from mainstream CMOS to emerging devices. This new approach prepares students broadly to realize the potential of emerging nanoscale devices for the electronics switching, flexible electronics, energy conversion, and biosensing.

The 2009 Summer School focuses on percolative transport and reliability in nanostructured electronic devices with additional sessions on graphene electronics. The format will be:

Mornings: Nanostructured Electronic Devices: Percolation and Reliability, by Muhammad A. Alam
Afternoons: Colloquium on Graphene Physics and Devices by Supriyo Datta, Mark S. Lundstrom and Joerg Appenzeller

Participants who complete the series of lectures and exercises will be awarded a certificate of completion.
