Numerical Aspects of NEGF: The Recursive Green Function Algorithm
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 so-called mean-free-path, λ) is much shorter than the device. When...
Fundamentals of Nanoelectronics (Fall 2004)
01 Sep 2004 | Courses | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta, Behtash Behinaein

Understanding Phonon Dynamics via 1D Atomic Chains
04 Apr 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Timothy S Fisher
Phonons are the principal carriers of thermal energy in semiconductors and insulators, and they serve a vital role in dissipating heat produced by scattered electrons in semiconductor devices. Despite the importance of phonons, rigorous understanding and inclusion of phonon dynamics in...
Device Physics and Simulation of Silicon Nanowire Transistors
20 May 2006 | Papers | Contributor(s): Jing Wang
As the conventional silicon metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) approaches its scaling limits, many novel device structures are being extensively explored. Among them, the silicon nanowire transistor (SNWT) has attracted broad attention from both the semiconductor industry...
Nanoscale Device Modeling: From MOSFETs to Molecules
20 Sep 2006 | Papers | Contributor(s): Prashant Subhash Damle
This thesis presents a rigorous yet practical approach to model quantum transport in nanoscale electronic devices.As convetional metal oxide semiconductor devices shrink below the one hundred nanometer regime, quantum mechanical effects are beginning to play an increasingly important role in...
Towards Multi-Scale Modeling of Carbon Nanotube Transistors
20 Sep 2006 | Papers | Contributor(s): Jing Guo, Supriyo Datta, Mark Lundstrom, M. P. Anantram
Multiscale simulation approaches are needed in order to address scientific and technological questions in the rapidly developing field of carbon nanotube electronics. In this paper, we describe an effort underway to develop a comprehensive capability for multiscale simulation of carbon nanotube...

Introduction to the Keldysh Nonequilibrium Green Function Technique
06 Oct 2006 | Papers | Contributor(s): A. P. Jauho
Keldysh nonequilibrium Green function technique is used very widely to describe transport phenomena in mesoscopic systems.The technique is somewhat subtle, and a rigorous treatment would require much more than we have at our disposal, see, for example, the text-bookk by Haug and Jauho .The...
Nanoscale MOSFETs: Physics, Simulation and Design
26 Oct 2006 | Papers | Contributor(s): Zhibin Ren
This thesis discusses device physics, modeling and design issues of nanoscale transistors at the quantum level. The principle topics addressed in this report are 1) an implementation of appropriate physics and methodology in device modeling, 2) development of a new TCAD (technology computer...
Modeling Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Transistors
30 Oct 2006 | Papers | Contributor(s): Ramesh Venugopal
As critical transistor dimensions scale below the 100 nm (nanoscale) regime, quan- tum mechanical effects begin to manifest themselves and affect important device performance metrics. Therefore, simulation tools which can be applied to design nanoscale transistors in the future, require new...
Lecture 3A: Spin Transport
20 Aug 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
Figure 3Objective: 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...
