  1. 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...

  2. PN Junction Theory and Modeling

    14 Sep 2005 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska

    This set of lecture notes is intended to help students learn the basics of PN junction theory and modeling.

  3. Contributing Learning Modules to the nanoHUB

    09 Jan 2006 | Learning Modules

    The goal of this learning module is to help you get started in the process of contributing learning modules to the nanoHUB. This module provides you an overview of what learning modules are, what components make up learning modules, and a quick guide to get started. A checklist is also provided...

  4. Quantum Dot Lab Learning Module: An Introduction

    02 Jul 2007 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): James K Fodor, Jing Guo


  5. Introduction to Carbon Nanotube Electronics

    12 Oct 2005 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): Susan Sinnott

    Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have interesting, structure-dependent electronic properties. In particular, CNTs can be a metallic or semiconducting depending on the way in which the carbon atoms are arranged in the CNT walls. The purpose of this learning module is to familiarize students with the basic...

  6. Introduction to Molecular Conduction

    21 Jul 2005 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): Ferdows Zahid, Magnus Paulsson, Avik Ghosh, Supriyo Datta

    A scanning probe microscope brushes the tips of molecules rising up from a gold substrate. After making contact, the probe measures a very strange current-voltage relationship--linear portions separated by flat spots or sharp increases. Definitely not Ohm's law. Is the experiment correct? What...

  7. Introduction to Nanofluidics

    26 May 2005 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): Susan Sinnott

    The purpose of this learning module is to introduce students to some fundamental concepts in Nanofluidics. The module includes a pretest (without keys), a presentation, reading materials on Nanofluidics, links to the REBO simulation tool on the nanoHUB along with necessary instructions for...

  8. Introduction to CNTbands

    28 Jun 2007 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): James K Fodor, Jing Guo

    This learning module introduces nanoHUB users to the CNTbands simulator. A brief introduction to CNTbands is presented, followed by voiced presentations featuring the simulator in action. Upon completion of this module, users should be able to use this simulator to gain valuable insight into the...

  9. Modeling Single and Dual-Gate Capacitors using SCHRED

    31 Mar 2006 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska

    SCHRED stands for self-consistent solver of the 1D Poisson and 1D effective mass Schrodinger equation as applied to modeling single gate or dual-gate capacitors. The program incorporates many features such as choice of degenerate and non-degenerate statistics for semiclassical charge...

  10. Introduction to the CENEMS Simulation Tool

    15 Apr 2006 | Learning Modules | Contributor(s): Gang Li, Narayan Aluru

    This learning module is an introduction to the CENEMS simulation tool. Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) often contains multiple nanoscale conductors. CENEMS is a user-friendly 2-D classical electrostatic analysis tool that computes the charge density distribution on the surface of the..., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
