Introduction: Physics of Nanoscale MOSFETs
26 Aug 2008  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom

Lecture 2: Elementary Theory of the Nanoscale MOSFET
08 Sep 2008  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
A very simple (actually overly simple) treatment of the nanoscale MOSFET. This lecture conveys the essence of the approach using only simple mathematics. It sets the stage for the subsequent lectures.

2008 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up
26 Aug 2008  Workshops  Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam, Supriyo Datta, Mark Lundstrom
Electronics from the Bottom Up is designed to promote the bottomup perspective by beginning at the nanoscale, and working up to the micro and macroscale of devices and systems. For electronic devices, this means first understanding the smallest electronic device – a single molecule with two...

Lecture 3A: Spin Transport
20 Aug 2008  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
Objective: To extend the model from Lectures 1 and 2 to include electron spin. Every electron is an elementary “magnet” with two states having opposite magnetic moments. Usually this has no major effect on device operation except to increase the conductance by a factor of two.But it is now...

ECE 495N Lecture 5: Quantitative Model for Nanodevices II
12 Sep 2008  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

Lecture 1A: What and where is the resistance?
20 Aug 2008  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
Objective: To introduce a simple quantitative model that highlights the essential parameters that determine electrical conduction: the density of states in the channel, D and the rates at which electrons hop in and out of the two contacts, labeled source and drain. This model is used to explain...
