Metal Oxide Nanowires as Gas Sensing Elements: from Basic Research to Real World Applications
21 Sep 2009   Contributor(s):: andrei kolmakov
Quasi 1D metal oxide single crystal chemiresistors are close to occupy their specific niche in the real world of solid state sensorics. Potentially, the major advantage of this kind of sensors with respect to available granular thin film sensors will be their size and stable, reproducible and...

ECE 539 Report: Study of twodimensional ShrodingerPoisson Solver
14 May 2009   Contributor(s):: Fawad Hassan
We solve the 2Dimensional ShrodingerPoisson system of equations using a self consistent scheme (like Gummel Iteration). We study a double gate Silicon Mosfet oriented in the 100 direction using the above setup. We assume a simple 6valley bandstructure for Silicon.
