The analog-digital interface is an essential part of sensing, communication and data-storage systems. New techniques are driving continued improvements in the efficiency and capability of Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs). The last fifteen years has seen a remarkable three order-of-magnitude...
Magnetic Ordering on the Surface of a Topological Crystalline Insulator
27 Oct 2017 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Herbert A. Fertig
Topological crystalline insulators (TCI's) are a class of materials which can support non-trivial band topology protected by crystalline symmetry. Using analytic and numerical methods, we study the effect of bulk magnetic impurities on a model of (Sn,Pb)Te alloys which are...
Looking Through a Sphere: Walks With Mie Theory Along Classical Optics, Plasmonics and Nanooptics

Electron Transport in Schottky Barrier CNTFETs
24 Oct 2017 | Papers | Contributor(s): Igor Bejenari
A given review describes models based on Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation, which are used to obtain I-V characteristics for ballistic CNTFETs with Schottky-Barrier (SB) contacts. The SB is supposed to be an exponentially or linearly decaying function along the channel. The ...
Quantum Optical Simulation of Complex Physical Hamiltonians
23 Oct 2017 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alexander V. Sergienko
The rapidly expanding research activity on quantum computing is ultimately an outgrowth of the profound Feynman’s observation that only quantum systems are capable to efficiently simulate other quantum systems. The goal of quantum simulation is therefore to find simple quantum systems that...
