Simple Theory of the Ballistic MOSFET
11 Oct 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
Silicon nanoelectronics has become silicon nanoelectronics, but we
still analyze, design, and think about MOSFETs in more or less in the
same way that we did 30 years ago. In this talk, I...
On the Reliability of Micro-Electronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
28 Sep 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
In 1930s Bell Labs scientists chose to focus on Siand Ge, rather than better known semiconductors like Ag2S and Cu2S, mostly because of their reliable performance. Their choice was rewarded with...
4.5 out of 5 stars
21 Jul 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
Quantum Dots are man-made artificial atoms that confine electrons to a small space. As such, they have atomic-like behavior and enable the study of quantum mechanical effects on a length scale...
