This tutorial presents a broad overview of the basic physical principles of techniques used in scanning electron microscopy (SEM), as well as their application to understanding processing/structure/property relationships in nanostructured materials. Special emphasis is placed on the capabilities...
Launch of a Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network
21 Feb 2006 | | Contributor(s):: larry bell
The Museum of Science, Boston, in partnership with the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Exploratorium in San Francisco, has been selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to form and lead a national Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network) comprised of multiple...
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 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...
Nano-Scale Device Simulations Using PROPHET-Part II: PDE Systems
20 Jan 2006 | | Contributor(s):: yang liu,
Part II uses examples toillustrate how to build user-defined PDE systems in PROPHET.
Nano-Scale Device Simulations Using PROPHET-Part I: Basics
Part I covers the basics of PROPHET,including the set-up of simulation structures and parameters based onpre-defined PDE systems.
Nano-Scale Device Simulations Using PROPHET
These two lectures are aimed to give a practical guide to the use of ageneral device simulator (PROPHET) available on nanoHUB. PROPHETis a partial differential equation (PDE) solver that offers usersthe flexibility of integrating new models and equations for theirnano-device simulations. The...
How Can Your Educational Modules Contain Interactive Online Simulation?
28 Feb 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
The Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) is a multi-university, NSF-funded initiative with a mission to lead in research, education, and outreach to students and professionals, while at the same time deploying a unique web-based cyber-infrastructure to serve the nation''s National...
Embedding science and technology education into students' lifestyles and technology choices
06 Dec 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Krishna Madhavan
Learning experiences of the future will be multi-sensory, engage technologies and significant computational power continuously and invisibly, and will be completely engaging. The emergence of highly cross-disciplinary fields like nanoscale science and technology, bioinformatics, and...

Simple Theory of the Ballistic MOSFET
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 will describe a simple analysis of the ballistic MOSFET. No MOSFET is truly ballistic, but approaching this...
On the Reliability of Micro-Electronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
28 Sep 2005 | | 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 the invention of bipolar transistors several years later. In 1960s, scientists at Fairchild worked...
