Lecture 3: Resistance-Ballistic to Diffusive
28 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
The resistance of a ballistic conductor and concepts, such as the quantumcontact resistance, are introduced and discussed. The results are then generalized to treat transport all the way from the ballistic to diffusive regimes.
Lecture 4: Thermoelectric Effects-Physical Approach
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,...

Tutorial 2: A Bottom-Up View of Heat Transfer in Nanomaterials
23 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher
This lecture provides a theoretical development of the transport of thermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials. The physical nature of energy transport by two carriers—electrons and phonons--will be explored from basic principles using a common Landauer framework. Issues including the quantum...
