On the Reliability of Micro-Electronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
5.0 out of 5 stars
03 Oct 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...
Parallel Computing for Realistic Nanoelectronic Simulations
4.5 out of 5 stars
26 Sep 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
Typical modeling and simulation efforts directed towards the understanding of electron transport at the nanometer scale utilize single workstations as computational engines. Growing understanding...
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...
2004 Computational Materials Science Summer School
29 Aug 2005 | Workshops
This short course will explore a range of computational approaches relevant for nanotechnology.
Moore's Law Forever?
10 Aug 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
This talk covers the big technological changes in the 20th and 21st century that were correctly predicted by Gordon Moore in 1965. Moore's Law states that the number of transistors on a silicon...
25 May 2005 | Online Presentations | 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...
3.0 out of 5 stars
The transistor is the basic element of electronic systems. The integrated circuits inside today's personal computers, cell phones, PDA's, etc., contain hundreds of millions of transistors on a...
NCN Student Workshop 2005
0.0 out of 5 stars
28 Apr 2005 | Workshops
The first NCN Student Workshop was held April 6-7, 2005. This workshop was designed to give students in the program a background about NCN activities, and to hear from them how NCN can better...
02 Apr 2005 | Animations | Contributor(s): EPICS LSPM Team
Nanotechnology is not just a topic for physicists, chemists, and engineers. Laura explains the important role of biologists in this field, and shows how they may help provide clues to molecular...
What is a Nanometer?
4.0 out of 5 stars
Join Laura and Martin on a wild ride through the milliworld and the microworld to reach the nanoworld. Along the way, they discover how small a nanometer truly is.
Feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing
15 Mar 2005 | Animations | Contributor(s): EPICS LSPM Team
Martin and Laura have an interesting debate about the feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing. Can molecular assemblers be developed to create new materials, new devices, and even macroscopic...
MATLAB Scripts for "Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor"
15 Mar 2005 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
Tinker with quantum transport models! Download the MATLAB scripts used to demonstrate the physics described in Supriyo Datta's book Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor. These simple models are...
Nanomanufacturing: Top-Down and Bottom-Up
2.5 out of 5 stars
Martin presents an overview of nanomanufacturing techniques, explaining the difference between top-down and bottom-up approaches.
Scanning Probe Microscopes
Laura explains how scanning probe microscopes can be used to create images of small devices, molecules, and even atoms! A large-scale version of the scanning probe microscope is built out of...
Nanotechnology 501 Lecture Series
22 Feb 2005 | Series | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck (editor), Mark Lundstrom (editor), Joseph M. Cychosz (editor)
Welcome to Nanotechnology 501, a series of lectures designed to provide an introduction to nanotechnology. This series is similar to our popular lecture series Nanotechnology 101, but it is...
Curriculum on Nanotechnology
27 Jan 2005 | Courses
To exploit the opportunities that nanoscience is giving us, engineers will need to learn how to think about materials, devices, circuits, and systems in new ways. The NCN seeks to bring the new...
28 Dec 2004 | Workshops
The Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) held a workshop entitled Challenges and Opportunities in the Development of Nanoelectromechanical Systems on April, 8, 2005. The workshop was...
