22 Sep 2009   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta, Mark Lundstrom, Muhammad A. Alam, Joerg Appenzeller
The school will consist of two lectures in the morning on the Nanostructured Electronic Devices: Percolation and Reliability and an afternoon lecture on Graphene Physics and Devices. A hands on laboratory session will be available in the afternoons.

Carbon Nanotube Electronics: Modeling, Physics, and Applications
28 Jun 2013   Contributor(s):: Jing Guo
In recent years, significant progress in understanding the physics of carbon nanotube electronic devices and in identifying potential applications has occurred. In a nanotube, low bias transport can be nearly ballistic across distances of several hundred nanometers. Deposition of highk gate...

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.

Computational and Experimental Study of Transport in Advanced Silicon Devices
28 Jun 2013   Contributor(s):: Farzin Assad
In this thesis, we study electron transport in advanced silicon devices by focusing on the two most important classes of devices: the bipolar junction transistor (BJT) and the MOSFET. In regards to the BJT, we will compare and assess the solutions of a physically detailed microscopic model to...

Device Physics Studies of IIIV and Silicon MOSFETS for Digital Logic
28 Jun 2013   Contributor(s):: Himadri Pal
IIIV's are currently gaining a lot of attraction as possible MOSFET channel materials due to their high intrinsic mobility. Several challenges, however, need to be overcome before IIIV's can replace silicon (Si) in extremely scaled devices. The effect of low densityofstates of IIIV...

Direct Solution of the Boltzmann Transport Equation in Nanoscale Si Devices
28 Jun 2013   Contributor(s):: Kausar Banoo
Predictive semiconductor device simulation faces a challenge these days. As devices are scaled to nanoscale lengths, the collisiondominated transport equations used in current device simulators can no longer be applied. On the other hand, the use of a better, more accurate Boltzmann Transport...
