  1. Colloquium on Graphene Physics and Devices

    22 Sep 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Joerg Appenzeller, Supriyo Datta, Mark Lundstrom

    This short course introduces students to graphene as a fascinating research topic as well as to develop their skill in problem solving using the tools and techniques of electronics from the bottom up.

  2. Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance

    20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics. Day 1: What...

  3. Nanostructured Electronic Devices: Percolation and Reliability

    17 Sep 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

    In this series of lectures introduces a simple theoretical framework for treating randomness and variability in emerging nanostructured electronic devices for wide ranging applications – all within an unified framework of spatial and temporal percolation. The problems considered involve...

  4. Near-Equilibrium Transport: Fundamentals and Applications

    28 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    Engineers and scientists working on electronic materials and devicesneed a working knowledge of "near-equilibrium" (also called "linear"or "low-field") transport. The term "working knowledge" meansunderstanding how to use theory in practice. Measurements ofresistivity, conductivity, mobility,...

  5. Percolation Theory

    03 Nov 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

    The electronic devices these days have become so small that the number of dopant atoms in the channel of a MOFET transistor, the number of oxide atoms in its gate dielectric, the number silicon- or metal crystals in nanocrystal Flash memory, the number of Nanowires in a flexible nanoNET...

  6. Physics of Nanoscale MOSFETs

    26 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime where traditional approaches to MOSFET device physics are less and less suitable This short course describes a way of understanding MOSFETs that is much more suitable than traditional approaches when the channel lengths are of...

  7. Solar Cell Fundamentals

    19 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom, J. L. Gray, Muhammad A. Alam

    The modern solar cell was invented at Bell Labs in 1954 and is currently receiving renewed attention as a potential contribution to addressing the world's energy challenge. This set of five tutorials is an introduction to solar cell technology fundamentals. It begins with a broad overview of...

  8. Thermal Transport Across Interfaces

    23 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher

    These lectures provide a theoretical development of the transport ofthermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials, in which materialinterfaces typically dominate transport. The physical nature of energytransport by two carriers: electrons and phonons--will be explored.
