  5. Electronics From the Bottom Up: a view of conductance

    17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    Resistance is one of the first concepts an electrical engineer learns, but things get interesting at the nanoscale. Experimentalists have found that no matter how short the resistor is, its resistance cannot drop below a fundamental lower limit. They also found that resistance increases in...

  6. Electronics From the Bottom Up: top-down/bottom-up views of length

    17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

    When devices get small stochastic effects become important. Random dopant effects lead to uncertainties in a MOSFET’s threshold voltage and gate oxides breakdown is a random process. Even a concept as simple as “channel length” becomes uncertain. This short (20 min) talk, a footnote to the...

  7. Electronics from the Bottom Up: an educational initiative on 21st century electronics

    17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom, Supriyo Datta, Muhammad A. Alam

    In the 1960’s, a group of leaders from industry and academia, recognized that the age of vacuum tubes was ending and that engineers would have to be educated differently if they were to realize the opportunities that the new field of microelectronics presented. The Semiconductor Electronics...

  8. 2007 Summer Undergraduate Research Intern Program Conference

    13 Aug 2007 |

    The NASA Institute for Nanoelectronics and Computing and NSF Network for Computating Nanotechnology offers qualifying students the opportunity to become Summer Undergraduate Research Interns (SURIs). SURIs join an ongoing cross-disciplinary research project team comprised of faculty and graduate...

  9. Presentation Publishing on the nanoHUB

    10 Jul 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph M. Cychosz

    This presentation gives a detailed overview of the process of creating an online presentation for the nanoHUB. It describes how to use Adobe-Macromedia's Breeze presentation tool in conjuction with Microsoft Powerpoint to create a narriated presentation, and how to upload it to the nanoHUB.

  10. 3D Molecular Models

    21 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Nicholas Vargo

    This animation was created as part of the Children's Museum Nanotechnology Exhibit to give the viewer an idea of what objects look like at the nano-level. The molecules range from something as small as caffeine to major proteins and viruses.Nicholas Vargo created this kiosk presentation as an...

  11. From Research to Learning in Chemistry through Visualization and Computation

    17 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Jakobsson

    Modern chemistry research and high school chemistry education are separated by institutional and geographical boundaries. As such, much of secondary chemistry education is still based on the periodic table instead of the computational methods that drive current chemistry research. In this talk,...

  12. Technology challenges of the 21st Century

    14 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eugene Meieran

    The 20th century was a century of remarkable scientific and technical achievement, as recorded in the National Academy of Engineering book, "A Century of Innovation". Three forces ("a perfect storm") combined to make this possible; almost universal availability of electric power to enable many...
