2005 Molecular Conduction and Sensors Workshop
27 Jul 2005  Workshops
This is the 3rd in a series of annual workshops on Molecular Conduction. The prior workshops have been at Purdue University, W. Lafayette, IN (2003) and Nothwestern University, Evanston, IL (2004). The workshop has been an informal and open venue for discussing new results, key challenges, and...

Electronic Transport in Semiconductors (Introductory Lecture)
25 Aug 2004  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
Welcome to the ECE 656 Introductory lecture. The objective of the course is to develop a clear, physical understanding of charge carrier transport in bulk semiconductors and in small semiconductor devices.The emphasis is on transport physics and its consequences in a device context. The course...

Nanoelectronic Architectures
24 Feb 2005  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Greg Snider
Nanoelectronic architectures at this point are necessarily speculative: We are still evaluating many different approaches to fabrication and are exploring unconventional devices made possible at the nano scale. This talk will start off with a review of some "classical" crossbar structures using...

On the Reliability of MicroElectronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
28 Sep 2005  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
In 1930s Bell Labs scientists chose to focus on Siand Ge, rather than better known semiconductors like Ag2S and Cu2S, mostly because of their reliable performance. Their choice was rewarded with the invention of bipolar transistors several years later. In 1960s, scientists at Fairchild worked...

Plasmonic Nanophotonics: Coupling Light to Nanostructure via Plasmons
03 Oct 2005  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Vladimir M. Shalaev
The photon is the ultimate unit of information because it packages data in a signal of zero mass and has unmatched speed. The power of light is driving the photonicrevolution, and information technologies, which were formerly entirely electronic, are increasingly enlisting light to communicate...

Notes on the Ballistic MOSFET
08 Oct 2005  Papers  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
When analyzing semiconductor devices, the traditional approach is to assume that carriers scatter frequently from ionized impurities, phonons, surface roughness, etc. so that the average distance between scattering events (the socalled meanfreepath, λ) is much shorter than the device. When...

Simple Theory of the Ballistic MOSFET
11 Oct 2005  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
Silicon nanoelectronics has become silicon nanoelectronics, but we still analyze, design, and think about MOSFETs in more or less in the same way that we did 30 years ago. In this talk, I will describe a simple analysis of the ballistic MOSFET. No MOSFET is truly ballistic, but approaching this...

Ballistic Nanotransistors  Learning Module
07 Dec 2005  Learning Modules  Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
This resource is an introduction to the theory ballistic nanotransistors. No transistor is fully ballistic, but analyzing nanotransistors by neglecting scattering processes provides new insights into the performance and limits of nanoscale MOSFETs. The materials presented below introduces the...
