Lecture 4: Thermoelectric Effects-Physical Approach
28 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
The effect of temperature gradients on current flow and how electrical currents produce heat currents are discussed.
Near-Equilibrium Transport: Fundamentals and Applications
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,...

Lessons from Nanoelectronics
20 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Everyone is familiar with the amazing performance of a modern laptop, powered by a billion-plus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. What is not as appreciated is the deeper understanding of current flow, energy exchange and device operation that...
