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...
Homework for PN Junctions: Depletion Approximation (ECE 305)
06 Jan 2006 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom, David Janes
This homework assignment is part of ECE 305 "Semiconductor Device Fundamentals" (Purdue University). It contains 7 problems which lead students through a comparison of the depletion approximation and the exact analysis of a PN junction diode.
Piezoelectric Transducers: Strain Sensing and Energy Harvesting (and Frequency Tuning)
15 Jun 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Toshikazu Nishida
Acoustic pressure or mechanical force sensing via piezoelectric coupling is closely related to the harvesting of electrical energy from acoustical and mechanical energy sources. In this talk, mesoscale and microscale piezoelectric transducers for acoustic and vibrational sensing and energy...
