A Gentle Introduction to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience
13 Feb 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
While the Greek root nano just means dwarf, the nanoscale has become a giant focus of contemporary science and technology. We will examine the fundamental issues underlying the excitement involved in nanoscale research - what, why and how. Specific topics include assembly, properties,...
A MATLAB code for Hartree Fock calculation of H-H ground state bondlength and energy using STO-4G
08 Aug 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Amritanshu Palaria
Hartree Fock (HF) theory is one of the basic theories underlying the current understanding of the electronic structure of materials. It is a simple non-relativistic treatment of many electron system that accounts for the antisymmetric (fermion) nature of electronic wavefunction but does not...
A Primer on Semiconductor Device Simulation
23 Jan 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Computer simulation is now an essential tool for the research and development of semiconductor processes and devices, but to use a simulation tool intelligently, one must know what's "under the hood." This talk is a tutorial introduction designed for someone using semiconductor device simulation...
An Overview of Virtualization Techniques
03 Feb 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Renato Figueiredo
This presentation presents an introduction to resource virtualizationtechniques, which are one of the foundations of the infrastructure foronline simulation provided by the nanoHUB.
Atomic Force Microscopy
01 Dec 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Arvind Raman
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is an indispensible tool in nano science for the fabrication, metrology, manipulation, and property characterization of nanostructures. This tutorial reviews some of the physics of the interaction forces between the nanoscale tip and sample, the dynamics of the...
Atomistic Modeling of the Mechanical Properties of Nanostructured Materials
16 Apr 2007 | | Contributor(s):: SeongJun Heo, Susan Sinnott
The mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes are studied by using classical molecular dynamics simulations. Especially, the effects of filling, temperature, and functionalization on CNT's tensional and twisting properties are considered in this study.
Building Capacity for Nano Education and Outreach through Partnerships with Science Museums: Overview and Case Study
31 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Carol Lynn Alpert, National Center for Learning & Teaching in Nanoscale Science & Engineering
This session will present the background and theory behind these collaborations and activities, provide examples, and address evaluative aspects. We will also touch briefly on a range of other examples of nanoscale research center – informal science education institutional collaborations, now...
Can numerical “experiments” INSPIRE physical experiments?
20 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
This presentation was one of 13 presentations in the one-day forum, "Excellence in Computer Simulation," which brought together a broad set of experts to reflect on the future of computational science and engineering.
07 Jul 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
In non-specialist language, this talk introduces CMOS technology used for modern electronics. Beginning with an explanation of "CMOS," the speaker relates basic system considerations of transistor design and identifies future challenges for CMOS electronics. Anyone with an elementary...
