23 Sep 2008   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
While the previous lectures have been in the spirit of the bottom up approach, they did not follow the generic device model of Datta. In this lecture, the ballistic MOSFET theory will be formally derived from the generic model for a nanodevice to show the connection explicitly.

Local density of states
17 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
The concept of general density of states (DOS) in devices is, by definition, spatially invariant. However, in the case of inhomogeneous materials or in quantum confined structures, the density of states can be resolved in space. This is known as local density of states, or LDOS. …

Notes on FermiDirac Integrals (3rd Edition)
23 Sep 2008   Contributor(s):: raseong kim, Mark Lundstrom
FermiDirac integrals appear frequently in semiconductor problems, so an understanding of their properties is essential. The purpose of these notes is to collect in one place, some basic information about FermiDirac integrals and their properties. We also present Matlab functions (in a zipped...
